The OpenEvsys database tool was developed for HURIDOCS by Respere. This new database tool builds on HURIDOCS’s earlier database systems, which have been used by human rights organisations around the world for the last 20 years.
OpenEvsys is a database for the management and documentation of human rights violations. Anyone can download and use it for free on their own computers, or contact HURIDOCS for secure online hosting.
OpenEvsys stands for Open Events System. Its built on the Events methodology for recording violations, and the “who did what to whom” data model. An event can best be understood as a basket, containing information on violations, victims, perpetrators, sources and interventions. An event is similar to the notions of incident or case.
OpenEvsys allows you to do the following tasks:
- Record, browse and retrieve and information on events violations, victims, perpetrators.
- Analyse your data, produce reports and detect trends and patterns of abuse.
- Manage and track your interventions, such as medical aid, legal aid, etc.
- Secure digital storage of related documents: testimonies, affidavits, audiovisual files.
