PRIMA members have guided a number of local organizations in collecting data on large-scale human rights violations during or after conflict. Our approach has been to draw upon the strengths of the data sources and programs of its partner organizations, and to address their gaps and weaknesses through enhanced data collection efforts. For example, in Colombia, Tamy Guberek and Daniel Guzman worked with EQUITAS to conduct a cemetery census to learn about patterns of unidentified bodies buried as NNs (no names). Romesh Silva’s work in Punjab, India, involved carefully customized approaches to protect the safety of field teams and survey respondents who were at risk due to the sensitivity of the issues they were investigating.
