LIVE Q&A with WITNESS staff and the Syrian Archive

Join us on Tuesday, April 24 at 10 a.m. EST for an exclusive live Q&A session with some of our staff and our partners at the Syrian Archive.

We will talk about the launch of the Chemical Weapons Database by the Syrian Archive and the importance of ensuring that human rights evidence is properly archived and analyzed. The Chemical Weapons Database is the first publicly available database of open source content documenting chemical weapon attacks in Syria between 2012 and 2018. The database contains over 2000 verified videos, tweets, and Facebook posts that can be viewed, analyzed and downloaded.

Our panelists include:

  • Hadi Al-Khatib (Founder, Syrian Archive)
  • Kelly Matheson (Video as Evidence Program Manager, WITNESS)
  • Dia Kayyali (Tech+Advocacy Program Manager, WITNESS)
  • Raja Althaibani (Middle East and North Africa Program Manager, WITNESS)

Make sure to tune in to our Facebook page on Tuesday.
