Lesson series 06: Human Rights Monitoring and Fact-Finding

The Issue

Basic guidelines are required for the process of gathering information about and monitoring human rights abuses. The most important aspect of a fact-finding process is the analysis of the information, and ultimately, utilizing the information to advocate for action to stop the violations. In addition to the technical skills and resources needed to accomplish thorough and proper documentation and reporting, a process must be set up to ensure regular and thorough analysis of facts gathered at different times throughout the process. A good analysis must be based on a thorough understanding of the socio-cultural situation within which the violations have taken place.
