Director of the Syrian Centre for Media & Freedom of Expression
Wednesday 27th November 2013 at 6 p.m.
Room G10, Civil Engineering Building, UCC
Yara Bader has played a key role in reporting the daily developments in Syria since the beginning of the uprising in early 2011. She is married to prominent Syrian human rights defender Mazen Darwish, who is also a journalist and who, up until his arrest, was the Director of the Syrian Centre for Media and Freedom of Expression (SCM).
In a raid on the SCM offices by Syrian Intelligence in February 2012, Darwish, Bader and 14 of their colleagues were detained and taken to the Air Force Intelligence facility, notorious for the abuse and torture of detainees. Bader and her female colleagues were released within a week, but Darwish has remained imprisoned to this date. For several months he was held incommunicado and, according to the reports from other detainees, he has been subjected to torture and other ill-treatment. Today, Bader works from exile, campaigning for Syrian detainees and continuing the work of the SCM.

A wide range of perspectives will be presented by way of contributions from an expert panel, including the views of litigation solicitors, medical professionals, patient safety advocates and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) practitioners.

It will conclude by exploring innovative approaches to patient safety and access to justice.
