This workshop teaches the practical skills of a human rights investigator: how to identify and design a research project, how to plan and conduct the research, including field investigations, and how to present the findings effectively to the media and advocacy targets. Covered topics include investigative methodology (interviewing victims, witnesses, and government officials; collection and analysis of photo, video, documentary and material evidence; as well as the use of new technologies, such as satellite imagery). Students will learn to select, conceptualize, and develop human rights research projects, and hone their writing skills to present human rights findings in a clear, concise and compelling manner, whether in internal memos, press releases, or detailed public reports.
