ICT4Advocacy

To offer an improved access to justice in Uganda, the use of ICT has been adopted by the government. At the same time, the civil society innovated various tools such as websites and web-based applications that aimed at enhancing justice.

Those can be human rights trackers offering proof for committed HR crimes. At the same time, the use of video footage and other data used to sue and sentence perpetrators carries new opportunities for criminals. Deep fakes and false documents are on the rise. Hence, data verification is a crucial part of the work of this Community of Practice (CoP).
