Lecture | September 13 | 6-8 p.m. | Boalt Hall, School of Law, Goldberg Room, 2nd floor

 Human Rights Center

The Human Rights Center’s Tech and Human Rights Director Felim McMahon in conversation with Amnesty International’s Crisis Response Team, featuring Tirana Hassan, Crisis Response Director; Micah Farfour, Special Advisor for Remote Sensing; Milena Marin, Senior Advisor for Tactical Research; Scott Edwards, Senior Advisor for Tactical Research; introduced by HRC’s Executive Director Alexa Koenig. Reception to follow! On-the-ground evidence gathering is being combined with cutting edge remote investigative methods to transform the way human rights defenders respond to crisis situations. With Amnesty International’s support, the Human Rights Center launched its Human Rights Investigations Lab (HRC Lab) in 2016 to begin teaching those methods for the first time in a university. Today, Berkeley students are assisting global investigations in real time. Come meet members of one of the teams they support.
