In this masterclass, we take you behind the scenes of our work in Iraq and Israel/Palestine. Together with Senior Iraq Researcher Belkis Wille and Israel and Palestine Director Omar Shakir, we explore the practical challenges, how to research and report on all parties involved and feasible advocacy strategies to bring about change.

Human Rights Watch defends the rights of people worldwide. We scrupulously investigate abuses, expose the facts widely, and pressure those with power to respect rights and secure justice. This includes situations of conflict that pose a variety of challenges.

With: Belkis Wille (Senior Iraq Researcher at Human Rights Watch) and Omar Shakir (Israel and Palestine Director at Human Rights Watch)

Moderator: Jan Eikelboom, journalist and former war reporter at Nieuwsuur
