Human Rights Reporting from Afghanistan
Afghan Witness is a project to independently collect, preserve and verify information on human rights and current events in Afghanistan. We aim to provide a reliable source of information for international organisations, governments, the media and NGOs, and to raise awareness of the reality of everyday life for Afghans living in the country.
Who we are
The Afghan Witness team is made up of people from Afghanistan, researchers, analysts, journalists and various international experts. We keep most of the team’s identity confidential for safety reasons. The project is coordinated by the Centre for Information Resilience, a UK-based non-profit with expertise in open-source analysis and investigations (OSINT).
We provide a secure solution for anyone who has witnessed a human rights incident in Afghanistan and wants to make sure their digital evidence is safely stored and used to hold the perpetrators to account.
All data is independently verified and kept safely and securely. Safeguarding the identity of witnesses and those providing data is of the utmost importance.
