In July 2019 Access Accountability ran a training workshop at the Inter-University Centre for Post-Graduate Studies (IUC) in Dubrovnik, Croatia in collaboration with the Geoffery Nice Foundation and Justice for Iran. Looking at case studies from Cambodia, the former Yugoslavia, Iran, North Korea, Myanmar and Vietnam, the master class studied the role human rights documentation and mapping play in prosecutions and social reconciliation following mass atrocities.

Within the mapping class, Access Accountability operated a 2-day intensive training workshop on how to apply GIS (Geographic Information Systems) to human rights documentation. Technology used included QGIS, and KoBoToolbox (both free to use). Our trainers for the intensive workshop were mapping expert Arthur Green and forensics expert Matt Vennemeyer.
