Human Rights Documentation Toolkit Launch

, ,

Join the Public International Law & Policy Group (PILPG) and the AAAS Scientific Responsibility, Human Rights and Law Program on behalf of the Human Rights Documentation (HRD) Toolkit Consortium to launch a new tool for human rights documenters. 

The HRD Toolkit is a multidisciplinary, interactive online portal providing human rights documenters with a searchable library of existing documentation resources and tools, best practices, and ongoing support from other documentation stakeholders. This virtual toolkit addresses the need for a single compilation of resources and information to enable better coordination among documenters.  Over the past year, the Consortium created the HRD Toolkit from a desk study, questionnaire responses, in-country cluster meetings, expert roundtables, and peer review process.

The Consortium, led by PILPG, includes stakeholders with extensive experience working across multiple sectors in human rights documentation, including: the American Association for the Advancement of Science; the Humanitarian Law Center; the International Coalition of Sites of Conscience; OutRight Action International; Physicians for Human Rights; The SecDev Foundation; SecDev Cyber; the International Bar Association’s EyeWitness to Atrocities project; and Phuong Pham and Patrick Vinck of the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative. The HRD Toolkit project is supported by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor.
