Want to be at the cutting edge of investigating international human rights abuses?
Amnesty International’s Citizen Evidence Lab supports human rights researchers and advocates in verifying and using new digital data-streams from conflict zones and other human rights hot spots.
This workshop, by Amnesty’s Milena Marin, is designed for human rights activists, journalists, techies and students who want an introduction to this fast-developing field of open source investigation and digital verification.
Milena Marin has ten years of experience working at the intersection of technology, data and social good. She is currently working with Amnesty International, leading Amnesty Decoders – an innovative platform, engaging tens of thousands of people in processing large volumes of data such as satellite imagery, documents and pictures for human rights research.
