The Syrian Network for Human Rights is an independent, non-governmental and non-profit human rights organization that investigates and documents violations committed by all parties involved in the Syrian conflict, regardless of the victims or perpetrators’ identities. SNHR operates with absolute neutrality and does not adopt any ideology.
II- SNHR’s Methodology:
SNHR abides by international professional standards and criteria in conducting its research and in issuing its reports and statements. SNHR follows the utmost precision and accuracy levels in collecting and documenting data despite the obstacles and challenges it has been facing since the beginning of the uprising in 2011. SNHR was able to establish a comprehensive database and archive which includes information about victims, detainees, injured individuals, targeted locations, facilities and infrastructure, use of illegal weapons, shelling aftermath and other relevant information.
SNHR’s data and reports are considered highly credible and reliable which prompted different international organizations to consider the network as a reference and primary source of information about human rights and its violations in Syria. For instance, the Office of the High Commissioner of Human Rights, the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, other international organizations, government agencies and media outlets consider SNHR as a reliable source of information.
