What we believe

When using technology to document mass atrocity crimes, ease of use as well as guaranteed evidentiary value of the collected footage is crucial. Through a participatory design approach we engage closely with the intended users of the eyeWitness technology – both the documentation teams recording footage and the investigators and lawyers using the footage for justice – to ensure our system meets their needs. We believe designing our technology with practitioner and legal input will result in the incorporation of more frontline footage into investigations. As a result, perpetrators of the worst international crimes will be held accountable for their actions, cultures of impunity will be challenged, and justice will prevail.

Who we are

eyeWitness to Atrocities is a charity registered in the United Kingdom.


How to get involved

We are always looking for people who speak languages, in particular Arabic, French, Spanish and Russian (but others are welcome too!) to help us keep our materials widely accessible. You don’t need to be a lawyer.

We currently work with various tech companies that help us develop and maintain our technology, ensuring it is up-to-date and secure from intrusion. If you have technical skills, in particular Android API, JSON, SQL, cyber security or bug hunting, we would love to hear from you.

If you would like to register your interest in joining our technology or languages skills bank, please email providing:

  1. Your CV
  2. Details of your availability, including if you are open to both paid and pro bono work
  3. Your consent to us holding your contact information

If we have a suitable pro bono or paid opportunity that arises we will get in touch.
