Video as Evidence: what can a civilian do?

Panel Discussion | February 22 | 6:15-7:30 p.m. | Boalt Hall, School of Law, Room 100

 Kelly Matheson, Senior Attorney and Program Manager, WITNESS; Alexa Koenig, Executive Director, Human Rights Center at Berkeley Law; Felim McMahon, Technology and Human Rights Director, Human Rights Center at Berkeley Law

 Human Rights Center, ASUC

People everywhere are using smart phones and
digital cameras to document abuses. But too
often, they are not filming safely or effectively,
and consequently, their photos and videos don’t
make a difference. How can we better use
the devices we have on hand to document
abuses of power, human rights violations,
and potential war crimes? Witness’s Kelly
Matheson, a filmmaker and human rights attorney,
leads trainings worldwide in best practices and
admissibility of video evidence. Alexa Koenig
helped to develop the Video as Evidence protocol
and co-founded the Human Rights Center’s
Investigations Lab. Félim McMahon is a war
crimes investigator and the Human Rights Center’s
new Tech and Human Rights Director.
