International Day of Remembrance and Tribute to the Victims of Terrorism
21 August, 2021
Victims of terrorism struggle to have their voices heard, needs supported and upheld. They report feeling forgotten and neglected once the immediate aftermath of a terrorist attack fades. Recovery and being able to cope with their trauma requires long-term multi-dimensional support, including physical, psychological, social and financial. Pillars I and IV of the UN Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy gives the charter for standing in solidarity and providing support to victims, capacity building assistance, establishing networks of, and offering support to, civil society organizations, particularly victims of terrorism associations, and encouraging Member States of the United Nations to promote, protect and respect the rights of victims. International Day of Remembrance and Tribute to the Victims of Terrorism is to honor and support the victims and survivors of terrorism and to promote and protect the full enjoyment of their human rights and fundamental freedoms.
