Documenting human rights interferences and conflict dynamics in Sudan
In response to the outbreak of armed conflict within Sudan in April 2023, CIR started to actively monitor, document and verify human rights interferences and conflict dynamics on the ground.
In addition to providing verified and trustworthy information, the Sudan Witness project preserves open-source digital information relating to the conflict and its impact on civilians.
Sudan Witness focuses on documenting harm to populations, damage to infrastructure, hate speech and incitement to violence, and sexual and gender-based violence (SGBV). It is also building partnerships with and building the capacity of Sudanese organisations reporting on and responding to these issues.
In a global collaboration with C4ADS and the Sudan Human Rights Hub, CIR launched the Sudan Shahid map, which enables the verified information to be visualised and safely stored in one place, open to all.
