Using Information & Technology
International human rights mobile app - RightsApp
People need access to human rights information, to protect themselves and to safeguard others. What if you had one quick reference guide to international human rights law, in your pocket? Ensuring vital information and resources are readily available and easily accessible to individuals so they can understand their rights?
That's why LexisNexis and the Australian Human Rights Commission developed the free RightsApp.
Now you can access important human rights information, faster and easier than ever before.

The International Bar Association, with support from LexisNexis, launched eyeWitness to Atrocities, a new app for capturing human rights atrocities so the information can be used as evidence in court. We believe this tool will be transformational in documenting and prosecuting atrocities crimes.
