We collect, analyse, verify and store evidence related to human rights incidents in Myanmar. We do this in order to increase accountability by publishing our own reports, partnering with traditional media outlets, and by storing the digital evidence in a way that is compatible with future human rights prosecutions.

How it works
WE VERIFY AND SORT INTO INVESTIGATIONS
Each piece of evidence goes through a verification process to establish its authenticity before being sorted into events and topics which form the basis of further investigations.
WE ENCOURAGE RESPONSIBLE REPORTING
We publish reports on social media and share our research with trusted media partners to help bring wider international attention to the current human rights situation in Myanmar.
Myanmar Witness has supported reporting that has appeared in local and international media including NHK, BBC News, and the Washington Post.
