Video as Evidence: All About Evidence



This section of the Video as Evidence Field Guide provides readers with a basic understanding of the definition, sources, purposes and characteristics of legal evidence so that you can better evaluate whether your video has the potential to effectively serve as evidence.

The Field Guide is drawn from conversations with attorneys, investigators, analysts, legal scholars, funders and our peers working on-the-ground where the violations happen, and will aim to improve the reliability and effectiveness of video shot as human rights documentation. Learn more at
