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.
Here is some more from their website:
Participatory research can create credible and critical documentation at the grassroots level. Not only can the information be utilized in advocacy and lobbying efforts, the research process itself can serve to create a network of activists, informing organizations working on issues that impact study participants, and directly benefiting the people themselves.
Participatory research is about “connecting victims of human rights violations to the information they need to become active defenders of their right and to develop creative solutions to human rights challenges.” (Chubashini Suntharalingam, Research for Action)
