Session 1: Truth, Memories and Justice: How to Preserve Memories by Documenting Human Rights Violations through Oral Testimonies, Forensic Anthropology and Archiving

From the moment a transnational migrant departs to the time he/ she reaches the destination country, the enormous difficulties and challenges of the journey are little known to outsiders. They easily fall prey to labor and sexual exploitation and violence while having trouble being accepted as equals by their destination society. How do human rights organization workers present truths and preserve memories through ways like oral testimonies, forensic anthropology, and archiving to realize social justice and bring about reforms?
