Advocacy Platform / Amnesty International (2016)
SITU Research's work with Amnesty International's Crisis Division documents scorched earth and chemical weapons attacks against civilians in the Jebel Marra region of Sudan. The platform, launched in coordination with Amnesty's address on the humanitarian situation in Sudan to the United Nations press corps, was designed to present multiple forms of visual evidence to viewers, policy makers, and advocates. As one of the most remote regions in Sudan, Jebel Marra is an incredibly difficult environment for human rights advocates, expert investigators, and independent humanitarian actors to conduct their work. SITU's work sought to address this problem set while building on the research of Amnesty investigators conducting their research remotely.
