Missing Syrians Data Collection and Verification Projects in KRI

Project Details:
  • Duration: 2020-2022

  • Location: Erbil – Duhok

  • Donor: UK

  • Partner: ICMP – International Commission for Missing Persons

Project Summary:

The projects were implemented by Judy Organization for Relief and Development in cooperation and coordination with the International Committee for Missing Persons (ICMP). The aim is to collect and analyze data of Syrian missing persons during the years of war in Syria. This was done through field data collection teams in Duhok and Erbil.
The projects targeted Syrian families who lost their loved ones during the war, through field visits conducted by data collection teams to those families. During these visits, an accurate field survey was conducted to identify the missing persons and collect the necessary information about them, such as name, age, personal description, and any other information that might be useful in determining their fate.
The data collection process is based on the advanced methodologies and tools used by the International Organization for Missing Persons, which help in accurately documenting and analyzing information. These efforts aim to create a comprehensive database that contains information of missing Syrians, and to provide it to the concerned, civil and governmental authorities concerned with research and investigation of missing persons cases.
The projects spanned over a time period extending from 2020 to 2022, and were implemented in the regions of Erbil and Duhok in the Kurdistan Region of Iraq. These areas are considered a center for receiving Syrian refugees and include large camps for shelter. The project was implemented with funding from the United Kingdom (UK) and in close collaboration with the ICMP.
This initiative aims to provide assistance and support to affected families and to enhance research and investigation efforts in cases of missing Syrians. Thanks to this project, reliable and useful data is provided to government agencies and related organizations, and contributes to global efforts to investigate missing persons cases and provide justice and relief to affected families.
