Joseph I. Lieberman Conference, "Beyond Bystander" Monitoring Human Rights in Conflict Zones



Monitoring Human Rights in Conflict Zones

This conference will bring together scholars and practitioners to discuss the challenges and opportunities of monitoring human rights in conflict zones. Whether born of the chaos of the battlefield, deliberate efforts at concealment or the lacuna of trauma, the “fog of war” challenges those who would know and show the violation of human rights to develop new technologies and techniques of documentation and narration. Transforming such testimonial from passive witness to active protection is an even greater—and more essential—challenge.

Please join us as we interrogate the current state of the art in investigating, verifying, analyzing, displaying, representing, and disseminating knowledge of human rights in conditions of conflict.
