        Student Volunteers Use Technology to Monitor Human Rights Abuses | PBS NewsHour

        In places around the world where violent conflict makes it impossible for human rights investigators to observe war crimes and atrocities committed against civilians, social media platforms like YouTube, Instagram and Twitter now make it possible to document abuses. The Human Rights Investigations Lab at the University of California, Berkeley is now training students to verify videos and other publicly available social media content coming out of areas like Syria, where human rights violations have been occurring.

        February 15, 2017 video and resource materials from PBS NewsHour.
