Forthcoming Data & Functionality

“All the perpetrator asks is that the bystander do nothing. He appeals to the universal desire to see, hear, and speak no evil. The victim, on the contrary, asks the bystander to share the burden of pain. The victim demands action, engagement, and remembering.”

-Judith Herman

  • Video interviews and Detailed Narratives

    • Detailed narratives for each victim profile (5,000+)
  • Call to Action Interface
    • Online advocacy and organizing platform, for alerting policy makers and experts, and organizing concerned citizens

    • Identifying information on those directly involved in extrajudicial executions
    • Detailed information on experiences of illegal detention, including a data visualization of detention locations
    • Profiles of seven key senior perpetrators, including government awards and superior responsibility for enforced disappearances and extrajudicial executions during their tenure
  • Data Visualizations
    • Rich data visualizations emphasizing the true scale and scope of Crimes Against Humanity in India, definitively rebutting state rationalizations or denials. The visualizations will explore themes like the impact of impunity, the rhetoric of national security, and trauma among survivors.
  • Reports
    • Thematic reports, as well as a main report with our findings highlighting numbers, scale, scope, and patterns of violence
