In search of new ideas for the creative and public enforcement of human rights, ECCHR founded Investigative Commons in 2020 to enable new ways to finding truths in matters of human rights and environmental protection.

The tools from which Investigative Commons carefully selects and uses are diverse, such as research methods from investigative and data journalism, machine learning, virtual and augmented reality, animation techniques, and innovative ideas rooted in architecture. These and other means help explore new ways to go about presenting evidence in legal casework.
