Countless photos and videos of human rights violations circulate in social media. Organizations like Amnesty International investigate whether they are genuine – including with a verification tool from DW.
Amnesty International’s Digital Verification Corps employs students from many countries to investigate photos and videos of human rights violations in social media. Who posted them, where do they come from, and when were they made? Amnesty plans to begin using Truly.Media, a verification platform developed by DW and the Athens Technology Center.
