On the Record
Between 1998 and 2003, AP profiled the campaigns of our civil society partners through an online newsletter, On the Record. In our first series, On the Record for a Criminal Court (1998), we reported on the successful campaign by the NGO Coalition for an International Criminal Court at the 1998 conference in Rome. Over the years that followed, we produced fifteen series – each comprising several newsletters. These are archived below. On the Record marked one of the first times that IT was used as a tool of human rights advocacy, and continues to draw praise and inquiries. In 2003, we switched from the format of On the Record to that of a shorter news bulletin, which we still publish today and which can be found in our Newsletters. The photo below shows victims of the notorious massacre at Srebrenica, in Bosnia, and was taken at a protest by relatives of those who died. Check out our Archives for our coverage of the relatives’ early campaign in On the Record.
