chat_bubble_messages-512We’re excited to start hosting peer-to-peer online discussions later this year! If you are working on (or struggling with!) human rights information management, we want to provide opportunities for you to learn from your peers. One format for this knowledge-exchange will be online discussions: 1-2 hour conference calls that will feature a few presentations and space for discussion. Summaries of these discussions will be published on the HURIDOCS website to make the information more accessible. We hope you’ll be a part of these discussions!
