Briefer on monitoring public assemblies

(ECNL) How do you have to plan and prepare to monitor an assembly? What do you need to observe when you are there? What do you do with the information you gather through first-hand observation? How do you deal with the media?

Our Briefer on Monitoring Public Assemblies gives a quick rundown of principles and practices human rights groups or individuals have to consider before, during and after monitoring a public assembly, protest or demonstration.

The briefer was written by Neil Jarman, on behalf of ECNL as part of the ‘Monitoring the Right to Free Assembly’ regional project. The project is made possible by the International Center for Not-for-Profit Law (ICNL) through the Civic Space Initiative.
