Counting the Toll: The Production and Consumption of Human Rights Data

June 15, 2012

Counting the Toll: The Production and Consumption of Human Rights Data. Patrick Ball at Mozilla. June 2012.

***

Patrick Ball has spent more than twenty years designing databases and conducting quantitative analyses for truth commissions, non-governmental organizations, international criminal tribunals, national tribunals, and United Nations missions in over twenty countries. Using examples from his projects in El Salvador, Kosovo, Colombia, Timor-Leste, and Sierra Leone, Patrick will explore how human rights statistics can be misleading — and how the limitations can be overcome. Patrick will discuss how human rights data, statistics, and Firefox! have influenced prosecutions, UN policy, and advocacy campaigns in Guatemala and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
