Activity Report: The Virtual Human Rights Lawyer

Public International Law and Policy Group

The Virtual Human Right Lawyer-project was set up by the Netherlands office of the Public International Law and Policy Group and the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam in response to the observation that while throughout the world many human rights mechanisms exist (although with varying redress capabilities), victims of human rights violations often do not know of their existence, where and whether their situation applies, and how to use these mechanisms. In light of SDG-target 16.3 and with the support of the KMF, a first prototype was developed for and tested in Namibia. This report outlines the progress of this first project phase, as well as the lessons learned for the further development of the Virtual Human Rights Lawyer.
