Current HRADP Projects

HRADP undertakes activities based on the outcomes of the GRN Forum on Human Rights Archives and Documentation.

Human Rights Electronic Evidence Project

This project, supported by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, is assessing the use of technology by human rights organizations to document human rights abuses.

Disposition of International Criminal Tribunal records

Through this project, HRADP actively advocates for appropriate preservation of records of several international criminal tribunals established by the United Nations to investigate genocide and other human rights violations in Rwanda, Bosnia, Cambodia, and other locations.

Human Rights Archives Information Portal

Information on human rights archives, repositories, and organizations that focus on documentation and archives is currently found in the HRADP Workspace, a wiki accessible to participating libraries. Contact the CRL representative for information on access to the Workspace.
