Syrians for Truth and Justice (STJ) is a nonprofit, nongovernmental organization monitoring human rights abuses in Syria. Founded in 2015 in Turkey, STJ has been based in France since 2019.

STJ is an independent and impartial human rights organization operating across Syria. Our network of field researchers monitors and reports human rights violations occurring on the ground in Syria, with access to IDP camps and other difficult-to-reach civilian communities. Our international team of human rights experts, lawyers, and journalists gathers evidence, examines emerging patterns of violations, and analyzes how violations break Syrian and international law.

Our commitment to human rights monitoring is founded on the idea that professional human rights documentation meeting international standards is the first step to uncovering the truth and achieving justice in Syria. In the long term, we believe our commitment will contribute to establishing lasting peace across the country by assisting in setting into motion and advancing transitional justice processes.
