HfRN & The Whistle Design Chatbot for Asylum Seekers

CGHR is super excited to share that in line with the theme Human Rights in the Digital Age, the Humans for Rights Network (HfRN) and The Whistle are developing a messaging chatbot for refugees in the UK. CGHR Co-Director Dr Ella McPherson is Project Lead.

Essentially a joint project, HfRN and The Whistle are designing and building an information-giving bot which supplies relevant information to asylum-seekers on their rights and living conditions in the UK.

The second phase of this project is concerned with information-gathering, which seeks to collect reports of human rights violations users have experienced or witnessed in asylum accommodations for use in advocacy and casework.
