Reclaiming Hope, Dignity and Respect: Syrian and Iraqi Torture Survivors in Jordan

This report describes patterns of torture and human rights abuses among Syrian and Iraqi refugees and the long-term mental health implications for both groups. The report is based on CVT’s direct experiences with clients and is the product of a series of in-person interviews with men, women and children who either survived torture in their home countries or have close family members who are torture survivors. It makes a number of recommendations for response by humanitarian organizations, resettlement countries and governments, as well as funders and organizations responsible for international transitional justice initiatives. CVT recommends increasing the availability of mental health services for survivors of torture and war trauma in their countries of resettlement.
