About HURIDOCS

Human Rights Information and Documentation Systems, International (HURIDOCS) is deeply rooted in the human rights movement, with decades of field experience and a high level of expertise in using information and technology. We are a global group of human rights researchers, documentation experts, information security specialists and software developers out to empower defenders to act strategically on human rights information.

Our work started in 1982 by helping grassroots organisations understand how to classify and manage their documents. Thirty-seven years later, HURIDOCS has become a field leader in developing innovative tools, methodology and resources for human rights defenders. We have designed reporting standards and thesauri; created open source software tools for documenting human rights violations, managing cases, and curating, annotating and sharing document collections; and delivered capacity building to organisations worldwide.

HURIDOCS believes that small, locally based organisations are the backbone of the global human rights movement: they provide direct support to victims, monitor crises first hand, and mobilise communities. HURIDOCS exists to provide human rights activists and organisations with customised solutions and services that enable them to gain an edge.
