This session, presented by Professor Margaret Satterthwaite, will begin by presenting findings from an empirical investigation of human rights fact-finding and advocacy reporting in 2000 and 2010. It will then turn to recent developments in human rights fact-finding, investigations, and research, including the embrace of metrics and measurement, lessons for fact-finding from social science, and the use of technology and social media. The session will conclude by engaging participants in a search to identify principles, investigatory procedures, and methodological strategies common to the diverse range of human rights research methods.
