Resource titleNew Tools for Old Traumas: Using 21st Century Technologies to Combat Human Rights Atrocities
Author(s)Sarah K. Dreier, William F. Schulz
Publication/ sourceCenter for American Progress
Date publishedOctober 2009
Summary text/ abstractAdvances in information and communications technologies have helped human rights activists. The American civil rights movement was bolstered by the shocking television images of Bull Connor's dogs attacking peaceful demonstrators in Birmingham, Alabama. Amnesty International's letter writing campaigns of the 1960s and 70s, successful as they were, grew even more powerful when letters could be supplemented by faxes and then emails, flash animation, and online organizing. Thanks to today's scientific and technological resources, there now exist unparalleled opportunities to expose human rights abuses. And with the knowledge generated by these new capacities for exposure, human rights champions have new opportunities to intervene to stop ongoing abuses, provide redress to victims, identify perpetrators and bring them to justice, and – by sending the message that the world is watching – even prevent abuses from taking place in the first place.
