Towards a Human Rights Observing System

Citation: Lars Bromley. Towards a Human Rights Observing System. Imaging Notes. Summer 2007. Volume 22 Number 2.

Developments within the remote sensing and geospatial technologies fields have enabled human rights organizations more effectively to investigate, monitor and contest atrocities and other human rights violations around the world. Notably, the establishment of a constellation of high-resolution observation platforms are allowing non-governmental organizations (NGOs) the ability to detect and respond to human rights violations as never before. Properly equipped, NGOs can complement formal responses from national governments and international bodies to the full range of human rights violations.
