We believe in a simple vision: A world where those who commit the worst international crimes are held responsible for their actions. We use an innovative approach, combining law and technology, to make this a reality.

Fight injustice with verifiable photos and videos

How eyeWitness ensures your photos and videos can be used to seek justice

creates a chain of custody

Second, the way we transmit and store the footage creates a chain of custody to allow the photos to be used as evidence in court.

catalogues the footage

Third, eyeWitness catalogues the footage it receives and compiles it into dossiers for submission to international or national investigators.

How your footage contributes to justice

eyeWitness works with partner organisations to capture photo and video to build dossiers of evidence. We have collaborated with civil society, litigation groups, the private sector, domestic and international courts, the United Nations and other international investigators to facilitate justice.
