The project supports the Human Rights Commission Zambia (HRC) in collaborating with civil society organizations to map human rights violations. It particularly focuses on human rights in places of detention and on the freedoms of assembly and opinion.
HRC and civil society organizations developed monitoring tools and instruments for the collection of human rights related information in prisons. Also, an interactive online-platform has been established to systematically map human rights violations. In addition, Deutsche Welle Akademie trained journalists and journalism trainers on how to report on human rights issues in a balanced and awareness-raising way.
