The Events Methodology << Pasts and Futures >>
This series of roundtable sessions bring together experts in human rights documentation to reflect on the history, impact, and future directions of the “Events Methodology.”

Session 1: The Events Method: A Look Back
27 March 2023 at 15:00-16:30 CEST

Thirty years since its first publication, the HURIDOCS Events Standard Formats: A Tool for Documenting Human Rights Violations (1993, revised 2001) directly and indirectly has shaped human rights documentation initiatives across the globe. This session provides an overview of the Events Methodology and serves as a refresher on the foundations of documenting human rights violations.

Session 2: The Events Method: A Direction Forward
28 March 2023 at 15:00-16:30 CEST

This session features various actors who have utilised, engaged, critiqued, and/or written about the events method through the years. From documenting violations on the ground to setting up human rights archives, and developing ontologies to designing databases, session speakers will discuss the impact, limits, and possible futures of the methodology given the changing landscape of the human rights field.
