Familiar Tools, Emerging Issues: Adapting traditional human rights monitoring to emerging issues

Minnesota Advocates uses traditional human rights monitoring methods to document human rights abuses.  The group has also made a practice of adapting this methodology to emerging human rights issues, and has identified and developed practical and sustainable strategies for adapting human rights monitoring methods to address domestic violence (in Eastern Europe and the U.S.), child survival (in Mexico, Uganda and the U.S.) and transitional justice (in Peru).  This paper discusses Minnesota Advocates’ strategies, and makes recommendations for adapting these methods in other contexts.
