We learned a lot out of our experience with HURIDOCS: how to collect and register data, how to organise it. Information management is crucial to expose what happened and to analyse crimes. It helps reveal the truth.
Of course, if politicians don’t want to do anything, they won’t – but HURIDOCS’ database greatly contributes to our visibility. We now have very good connections with academics, civil society, and the media, which can easily get the information and numbers they need to write articles. Last but not least, HURIDOCS has contributed to keeping the memories of the victims alive. It helps the families to know their beloved ones are not forgotten.”
