Investigating, monitoring and reporting on human rights violations

Edited by


This course aims to develop the skills of conducting and reporting impartial and accurate research into human rights abuses. It will be of benefit to anybody in NGOs and other groups promoting rights-based advocacy or seeking to defend human rights.

It is part of an integrated collection of courses developed by Fahamu in conjunction with the University of Oxford.

The course comprises two modules. The foundation module aims to develop participants' ability to plan and conduct impartial and accurate research and investigations of human rights violations or abuses. The advanced module deals in greater depth with the monitoring and reporting skills required to track the development of important human rights issues, and to observe significant events and report on them.

During the course, participants will have opportunities to practise some of the skills they are learning – especially interviewing, one of the core skills for a factfinder. They will also have to complete ten practical assignments, to help them learn and demonstrate their new skills.

Orders within the United Kingdom include VAT.
