HURIDOCS (Human Rights Information and Documentation Systems) is an NGO that helps human rights groups gather, organise and use information to create positive change in the world.

Types of assistance offered by the organisation:

Digital security

Useful information

Target group: human rights defenders

Operates in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe 

For human rights information to be useful, it has to be in the hands of activists, advocates, policy makers and researchers who can leverage it to lead change. HURIDOCS has long developed tools to address this fundamental need. The latest is Uwazi, an open-source database application for capturing and organising collections of information.

As part of the pursuit of justice and accountability, human rights defenders need to create and manage often large collections of information. This includes documenting evidence of ongoing or past human rights violations, compiling libraries of human rights law, or monitoring a human rights situation for the purposes of reporting. Here you’ll find methodologies, guides, frameworks and more to support this work.
