  • Association for Defending Victims of Terrorism (ADVT) is a non-governmental organization which has been in Consultative Status with ECOSOC since 2014 and was founded by the families of the victims of terrorism in Iran. ADVT has a cultural approach to humanitarian efforts in order to create discourse for the human rights of the victims and cultural countering terrorism. So, it paves the way for a global peace and elimination of all forms of violence and extremism. ADVT does not seek to take revenge on individuals, but believes that those captivated in the cults are the first circle of victims. One of the effective ways of countering the idea of terrorism is raising awareness among human communities regarding the destructive effects and consequences of the heinous phenomenon by the victims of terrorism. It can provide the conditions for the trial and condemnation of the ringleaders of terrorist groups as the guarantee for non-recurrence of crimes. ADVT's approach in the civil movement is proactive and based on two elements: 1) providing an all-out support for the victims of terrorism and promoting their dignity 2) mounting a fundamental struggle against the thought of terrorism. It can be achieved through the voluntary help of personalities, elites, academics, and cultural and scientific assemblies based on the following plans: 1- Empowering victims of Terrorism, 2- Creating discourse for human rights of the victims of terrorism, 3- Organizing psychological plans for promoting health of the injured so that they can return to their ordinary life, 4- facilitating right to lawsuit and access to justice and truth for victims of terrorism, 5- Promoting a dialogical approach and its expansion, 6- Making efforts to break the immunity of terrorism and the escape from punishment. ADVT's ideal is based on defending human dignity regardless of color, language, race, ethnicity, religion, and nationality.
