Organize an efficient strategy as a result of the information they have
Use tools and methods that improve the impact of their work at a global level
They also aim to strengthen international and regional human rights mechanisms by making their datasets openly accessible – case law, reports, communications or resolutions – that can lead to more effective advocacy and litigation.
