Victims and families of victims of crimes committed in Chad between 1982 and 1990, whether or not the plaintiffs, will be the focus of the outreach program. This outreach program will aim to keep them informed of the proceedings, to answer their questions and tell them the means available to them if they wish to take part.
Among the victims, more specific attention will be given to women who have been affected in a particular way by the crimes committed. They may have special needs for information, protection or participation in the Extraordinary African Chambers (EAC), which will be fully catered for.
Public and private media in Senegal and Chad are the second priority target of the outreach program. Workshops will be organized for journalists of the two countries so that they are informed in a neutral and independent manner, and they can regularly inform the public. These journalists will be linked with African regional and international correspondents, for which the awareness consortium will facilitate access to information.
â€˘ Civil Society
Civil society Organizations (CSOs), in particular human rights organizations in Senegal and Chad were particularly interested in the justice process. Meetings with CSOs will be organized to inform, build a network and solicit their participation in outreach activities.
â€˘ Leaders and intellectuals
The outreach program aims to foster the emergence of high quality public debate on theÂ Extraordinary African Chambers (EAC) in Senegal, Chad and elsewhere in the world, informing leaders and intellectuals.
