Who We Are

Established within the Italian National Association for Civilian Victims of War (ANVCG), L’Osservatorio is a research centre that brings to public attention the consequences of conflicts on civilians. Against this backdrop, L’Osservatorio aims to document mass human rights violations, to archive individual and collective memory, to protect and promote the rights of the victims, and to prevent repetition of such abuses in the future. On weekly basis we provide updates on ongoing conflicts and their impact on civilians involved in wars.

We are group of volunteers keen on human rights’ defense in armed conflict. We are human rights and international relations experts, editors and translators, all volunteers working from different countries. We have an office in Rome, in ANVCG headquarters.
