Getting Online for Human Rights:
Frequently Asked Questions and Answers About Using the Internet in Human Rights Work

 


The American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) Science and Human Rights Program is pleased to announce the release of a new resource entitled Getting Online for Human Rights: Frequently Asked Questions and Answers About Using the Internet in Human Rights Work. This is the first in the AAAS Science and Human Rights Program's series on the application of information technology to human rights work. Getting Online for Human Rights addresses questions on how to apply Internet technology to human rights research, such as search engine strategies and webbots, accessing materials on the Web with only email, Internet security issues, and communications (electronic conferences, email, listservs, newsgroups, etc). It also offers suggestions on dealing with and protecting the integrity of Internet-based human rights information. Aimed at reaching as wide an audience as possible, it assumes only a very basic knowledge of the Internet on the part of the reader.

Individual copies can be obtained directly from the AAAS Science and Human Rights Program for $5 US each (plus $2.50 shipping and handling).
