The Coalition "Justice for Peace in Donbas" is an informal union of 17 human rights organizations and initiatives. Members of the Coalition have combined efforts to conduct coordinated documenting of human rights violations, committed during the armed confrontation in eastern Ukraine.
The Coalition focuses on gathering information about the most serious human rights violations and violations of international humanitarian law.
An important task of the Coalition (which is reflected in its name) is to struggle with impunity of those guilty of gross violations of human rights and international humanitarian law in Donbas during the armed confrontation. According to members of the Coalition, bringing such individuals to justice is a prerequisite for the restoration of peace and reconciliation in eastern Ukraine.
Together members of Coalition create a database, which collects information on human rights violations during the armed confrontation.
Coalition members make efforts to improve access to justice for those who suffered the most during the conflict. Coalition members are now providing vital support to such people, including victims of illegal detentions, tortures, released prisoners, immigrants unlawfully deprived of property, and facilitate their reintegration into Ukrainian society.
Most Coalition members are public association of Luhansk and Donetsk regions.
