Civil Society and Survivors Stand United Against Exclusionary Practices in the YSL Application Process

March 1, 2023

Two years after the adoption of the Yazidi Survivors Law (YSL), public attention and support is more than ever needed to ensure that critical reparative measures (compensation, rehabilitation, education, land, housing and employment) don’t remain unrealized. Namely, in an alarming development, and opposite to the text and spirit of the YSL, survivors are being survivors to file a criminal complaint through the courts and submit formal investigation documents for their applications to be considered. This requirement may effectively prevent thousands of eligible survivors from accessing their rights under the YSL. See C4JR´s video. featuring NGOs, activists and survivors highlighting obstacles along the road towards realizing their right to reparation.
