As part of its mission to see survivors of the ISIL conflict in Iraq realise their right to reparations, the Coalition for Just Reparations (C4JR) earlier this week concluded an intensive three-day training workshop (from September 24 to 26) in the city of Duhok for members of the coalition’s advocacy group.
This workshop aimed to strengthen the capabilities of C4JR group members in our collective advocacy work, including practical exercises and discussions around the new and impactful tactics in the field. Participants were provided with tools and strategies based on the “Strategic Effectiveness Method,” which had been covered in two prior online training sessions. These strategies were ultimately focused upon the need to advocate for and deliver the full implementation of the Yazidi Survivors Law (YSL), ensuring the rights of survivors to receive fair reparations.
“This training has been very valuable. I’ve acquired new tactics for effectively identifying problems and envisioning solutions, developing strategic plans rooted in these tactics, and ultimately working toward our vision and goals. These skills will prove immensely beneficial in advocating for survivors and championing their rightful reparations,” says Saber Saeed, C4JR’s PR and Communications Officer.
The training was delivered in partnership with a highly skilled team from the Center for Victims of Torture, and we are grateful for their work. Stay tuned for more updates!
