Pawah! tech for human rights

This session will present Pawah! a tool to record reliable and auditable proofs of human rights abuses for legal processes, journalistic investigations and public denunciation. This presentation will be composed of two parts.

The first part of the session would be a walkthrough on the development of Pawah!. We plan to explain their objectives and current development after receiving mentorship by Mozilla. We will explain how it was born in Mexico with the help of activists that were victims of police repression and how it is evolving.

Afterwards, there is going to be a panel of experts in the field that will discuss about the functionality of Pawah! and other similar tools to defend human rights and contribute to transitional justice. For this, we will map problems and found during the developing of Pawah! with potential solutions. We will ask the audience to help and give feedback.
