Tactical Dialogue on Research for Participatory Action

I discovered a new website care of HURIDOCS this morning called New Tactics in Human Rights.  Each month New Tactics conducts online tactical dialogues in which the public is invited to participate in discussions regarding resources and tools for human rights activists networks and organizations.  New Tactics urges those interested to join in on their upcoming online dialogue, Participatory Research for Action to be held on November 17 to 23.
