The Coalition for Just Reparations (C4JR) is an alliance of Iraqi civil society organizations (CSOs), representing Iraq’s linguistic, ethnic and religious diversity, supporting reparation claims of survivors and other victims of crimes perpetrated during the conflict with the self-declared Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS conflict in Iraq). C4JR draws on international human rights and national law to advance the right to reparations of all civilian victims of ISIS armed conflict in Iraq.
More than a year has passed since the Iraqi presidency submitted a Yazidi Female Survivors’ Law to the Iraqi parliament for review and approval. This was a most welcome step, but more progress is needed.
C4JR seeks to revive the public debate on reparations for survivors of conflict-related sexual violence in ISIS created conflict in Iraq with the goal of improving the Yazidi Female Survivors’ Law and getting it adopted in the Iraqi parliament.
C4JR formed a Draft Law on Reparations for Survivors of Conflict Related Sexual Violence Committed During the ISIS Conflict in Iraq to protect the survivors’ rights for reparations and build a safer place for the next generations to live at.
