Video as Evidence Field Guide: Compiled Sections



This document is a compilation of all 13 Video as Evidence Field Guide sections and mini guides.

The Video as Evidence Field Guide provides basic and advanced practices activists can use to strengthen the chances that their footage can serve as evidence. It 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.
