Director Paul Mackman and IDCR Director Todd Landman met with the Thomson Reuters Foundation to move an exciting Human Rights project forward. The project known as “the Human Rights Atlas” will be an online human rights resource with information collated from multiple sources. The information and data on human rights commitments and human rights performance will be made available through a user-friendly web interface.
Thomson Reuters is a world news media corporation and the Thomson Reuters Foundation has a number of complementary knowledge products related to humanitarian crises, emergency situations, conflicts and human rights law. The Foundation is a joint member of The Westminster Consortium on Parliamentary Strengthening of which the IDCR is also a part. Landman and Mackman are developing strategies to maximise the visibility and impact of the Atlas and the initial responses from the Foundation were highly positive.
The Mackman Group are official partners in the project alongside the IDCR and the University of Essex.
