National Network of Survivors of South Sudan
The National Network of Survivors of South Sudan was established on Tuesday 14 June 2022 in Juba, and is made up of State-level networks that started to be formed three years ago.
This Statement was drafted as a result of a two-day workshop on survivors' rights and concerns about the establishment of the Commission on Truth Reconciliation and Healing in South Sudan (CTRH) that is required under Chapter V of the 2018 Peace Agreement (R-ARCSS). The CTRH is in the early stages of being established and Public Consultations have taken place covering the ten States and three Administrative Areas of South Sudan in accordance with the Peace Agreement.
Two survivor representatives handed the Statement to the Chairperson of the Technical Committee for the Establishment of the CTRH and the First Deputy Speaker of the Council of States on 15 June at the "Stand With Us for Truth, Reconciliation and Healing" event we organised in Juba on the occassion of the International Day for the Elimination of Sexual Violence in Conflict.
