Advancing Justice with Digital Evidence: The Berkeley Protocol
Hosted by The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, Medicine
The Human Rights Center (University of California, Berkeley School of Law) and the United Nations Human Rights Office launched the Berkeley Protocol on Digital Open Source Investigations to set international standards for the use and analysis of online content–including social media posts–for research, reporting and investigations. This panel will discuss the protocol’s contents, its drafting process, and the ethical and logistical challenges and opportunities that underlie this rapidly-expanding field of practice.
