This seminar introduces the concept and practice of online open source investigations: investigations that use social media and other publicly accessible, internet-based sources to gather and verify evidence for advocacy and legal accountability. In addition to lectures and readings, the course will introduce students to the Human Rights Investigations Lab at Berkeley Law’s Human Rights Center, an effort that is being operated in partnership with Amnesty International, the University of Pretoria, University of Essex, University of Toronto, Cambridge University, and a number of other organizations that are working to bring awareness to grave international crimes and other human rights abuses. In the course, students will learn how to collect and authenticate digital information on war crimes and human rights abuses and will cover the information needed to engage in one or more real-world investigations.
