The Defenders’ Database (DiDi) is a an easy-to-use tool for human rights defenders to register, analyse and share information about human rights violations. It permits users to record data on violations both online and offline, store documentation and import old reports to give the information life again. The anonymised data from our certified users is published in the map-and-graph-tool below, and can be filtered and shared by anyone.
DiDi was launched in April 2018 and is still under construction, so please bear with us in the beginning and give us feedback at email@example.com. There will be plenty of news in the near future, so please stay updated by visiting the site frequently.
NOTE, March 2019: The passing of Josefin Ekermann, the project manager of the Defenders’ Database, has left us all with deep grief and sorrow. We had planned to present the new version of the DiDi here during April 2019. It is now however slightly delayed, but the work continues and it will be presented shortly. – Erik Jennische, Civil Rights Defenders.
NOTE, May 2019: We are in the middle of finalising the new version of DiDi, so the data in this version is not updated or reliable at the moment.
