Justice systems across the globe are struggling with how to collect, preserve and analyze the tidal wave of digital information being captured through social media and other online sources. There are countless stakeholders involved in the effort to optimize the use of digital evidence in human rights and humanitarian law cases - from first responders on the ground to analysts and investigators collecting and processing data to prosecutors bringing cases before international and national courts. 

What is the ideal platform to build a field-of-practice around the use of digital evidence - something that will be localized, dynamic, collaborative and, most importantly, useful to the wide-ranging community that is seeking impact with this trove of data? 

To answer this question, the Human Rights Center at UC Berkeley and WITNESS are seeking input from a wide range of actors in the space. Please join us for this informal discussion in the Community Village.
