HiiL has launched a chatbot service in Arabic that supports Syrian survivors of sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV). The chatbot named Yasmina provides information and resources for women directly affected by SGBV. Her service is part of our Syria Justice Innovation Process, a broader project focused on empowering Syrians to help them address their everyday legal problems.
We at SJIP wanted to better understand what impact Covid-19 has on justice in Syria. Hence, we brought together a diverse group of Syrian voices to explore the relationship between Covid-19 and everyday legal problems in Syria, in particular SJIP’s Justice Innovation Goals.
We put together the outcome of these in-depth online discussions in a summary, which details the different layers of impact and possible strategic responses over the months and years to come. The summary can be found here.
