We are seeking submissions from people who support the goals of reconciliation, peace, and transitional justice (for more information, see UN Special Rapporteur on the promotion of truth, justice, reparation and guarantees of non-recurrence). More generally, we are seeking submissions from people who are dedicated to peacefully defend rights as defined by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and by the Core International Instruments of Human Rights.
When a participant submits an audio recording, it is not available publicly. In some cases, we will share audio accounts, but these would need to be vetted and examined on a case-by-case basis and then published by the project managers.
We hope to publish and circulate a selection of submissions that we receive. However, we reserve the right to not publish any submission for any reason, at our own discretion. Stated another way, submitting an audio recording through this project does not guarantee that it will be published. Some of the reasons we may choose not to publish a story, for example, include: that it creates risk or danger for anyone, including the person submitting it, in our judgement; that it is vulgar or inappropriate; that we have reason to believe it is untrue and/or submitted with the intention to deceive of cause mischief; that it mentions other people's names inappropriately or without their prior knowledge or permission; or that it is inconsistent with a full understanding of human rights as defined by the Core International Instruments of Human Rights.
