HUMAN RIGHTS MONITORING WORKSHOPS & SIDE EVENTS

Workshop-1: Online Documentation and UWAZI

Kristin Antin welcomes you to the workshop: “This workshop will cover the usage of the online tool Uwazi (created by HURIDOCS) to document human rights violations and its contribution to monitoring activities. Uwazi is a flexible, web-based database application designed for human rights defenders to capture and organise collections of information. In practice, this means human rights defenders are using Uwazi to: preserve evidence of human rights violations, organize libraries of human rights law, build collective memories in the pursuit of transitional justice, and more.”

Workshop-2: Online Advocacy Tools

Pınar İlkiz welcomes you to the workshop: “Digital data has a tremendous multiplier effect on making people and the topics they advocate visible. At this workshop, we will seek answers to the question, ‘How can we make this multiplier effect more productive?’ We will look into which tools we should use to better find our way amidst the content density of the digital world.”

Workshop-3: Oral History and Video Production

Elif Ergezen welcomes you to the workshop: “Easy access to image recording, processing and sharing technologies turns them into political tools, which accompany actions and democratise them. As the use of surveillance and supervision technologies becomes widespread, a kind of activism that aims to create an alternative history against it is gathering strength. Oral historical recording (archiving) and collecting evidence (reaching witnesses), also holds an important position as frequently-consulted resources in the fields of digital activism, citizen journalism and documentary films. At this workshop, we will talk about the implementation of effective listening and question-asking techniques for CSOs that carry out monitoring and points to consider before and after conducting oral history work.”

Workshop-4: Data Visualisation

Özgür Kurtuluş welcomes you to the workshop: “With the coming of the internet, there was an eruption of data production and access to data. The data volume produced in last year alone was twice as large as the data produced throughout human history until the invention of the Internet. Today, good processing of data by the members of civil society ensures a better understanding of society and phenomena and building effective communication in advocacy activities. At this workshop, we will focus on data literacy and data visualisation and get to know the tools used for data visualisation.”
