SITU Research is pleased to announce the launch of Spatial Evidence and Advocacy (SPEA) - a project that will utilize spatial analysis and visualization in the service of human rights and fact-finding and reporting. Mobilizing innovating applications of existing and emerging technologies, a primary goal of SPEA is to broaden the "tool kit" and culture of human rights work to include design as an integral component of legal and advocacy initiatives.
The project is made possible through the generous support of the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation and the Oak Foundation.
