Monitoring and Documentation of the human rights violations are core activities for a successful evidence-based advocacy.

Monitoring is a long-term systematic process allowing close observation of the situation or case(s) of the human rights violations, including different stages, from fact-finding to report writing.

Documentation has different meanings, depending on the geographical context or in the field where it is employed.

Documenting human rights violations could be based on a wide range of purposes, including education, awareness-raising, litigation, direct assistance to victims, and historical records.

ILGA-Europe supports organisations in documenting and reporting human rights violations through providing resources and learning opportunities to strengthen LGBTI advocacy capabilities.
