Hundreds of thousands of Syrians have been arbitrarily detained in Assad’s prisons since the start of the Syrian conflict. As part of the Geneva III process, the Women’s Consultative Committee of the Syrian opposition High Negotiations Committee is working to develop a mechanism to secure the release of all detainees, starting with women and children. In this special event, Syrian women of diverse backgrounds will describe their own experiences of torture and detention in Assad’s prisons, as well as the opposition’s efforts to ensure the safe release of Syrian detainees.
