Über uns

HURIDOCS is a global capacity-building network of organisations that use documentation techniques, monitoring methods, information management systems and technologies in the defence of human rights and the prevention of abuses.

Our Mission: To strengthen the capacity of human rights organisations to manage and communicate information, enhancing their effectiveness and credibility.

Our Goal: To ensure that human rights organisations have the tools, knowledge, skills and supporting services to use their information resources effectively.

Our objectives:

• To develop tools and techniques for monitoring, information management and communication; and
• to provide them to human rights organisations and national human rights institutions.
• To build the capacity of the human rights community to master and adapt these tools and techniques to their specific needs through training and other activities.
• To support human rights organisations to set up and strengthen their information systems.
• To improve human rights advocacy and reporting techniques.
• To expand human rights outreach and network capacity.
• To provide a centre of excellence on methods and techniques for human rights.

HURIDOCS is a decentralised network and has partnerships and collaboration with a large number of human rights organsations world-wide.
