The Center for Research Libraries will host a webinar on human rights documentation next Wednesday, January 11, from 2 to 3 p.m. Central Time. In this event, CRL will present findings from its recently concluded Human Rights Electronic Evidence Study. Marie Waltz (special projects manager) will discuss the nature of human rights evidence, drawing on case studies of events in Rwanda and elsewhere. Sarah Van Deusen Phillips (project coordinator) will summarize some of the findings from the assessment of regional organizations, including the flow of information among human rights networks in Mexico, Rwanda, and Russia. James Simon (principal investigator) will discuss the “lifecycle” of human rights electronic evidence and some of the tools and practices being used by organizations to collect and create documentation. He will highlight some of the major issues in the use of electronic evidence in advocacy, national and international judicial processes, and other “downstream” processes.
