CGHR hosted a book launch for the book Digital Witness: Using Open Source Information for Human Rights Investigation, Documentation, and Accountability, edited by Alexa Koenig, Sam Dubberley and Daragh Murray.  This book includes a chapter, ’Open Source Investigations and the Technology-Driven Knowledge Controversy in Human Rights Fact-Finding’, written by CGHR ’s Co-Director, Dr Ella McPherson together with Matt Mahmoudi and Isabel Guenette Thornton.

This book is the first to cover the history, ethics, methods, and best-practice associated with open source research. It is intended to equip the next generation of lawyers, journalists, sociologists, data scientists, other human rights activists, and researchers with the cutting-edge skills needed to work in an increasingly digitized, and information-saturated environment.
