Across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA), prisons, checkpoints and former clandestine sites of torture are at risk of destruction or deterioration. In response, the Coalition has united Sites of Conscience from seven countries to create a pioneering digital map identifying sites of human rights violations in the region. The Digital Mapping and Documentation in MENA project launched a pilot map in late 2017 that compiles data on critical sites and pinpoints their geographic location. This toolkit is designed to detail the map-building process to allow for pan-regional replication of the model for Coalition members and partners worldwide.
