This chapter explains that the most widely used method for promoting human rights—collecting and disseminating detailed and reliable information on rights abuses and assessing the findings against the requirements of international law—is not difficult to master. The main requirements are a commitment to fairness and accuracy, care in taking and crosschecking testimony from those with first-hand knowledge, and a grasp of the principal provisions of international law protecting rights. Ensuring that the information gets to the places where it can have an impact in a timely fashion is easier than ever in an era in which information technology has advanced with such astonishing rapidity.
