The Edinburgh International Justice Initiative stands with the BLM movement and the insurance of human rights and international justice everywhere. In light of current events and protests around the world, EIJI has decided to collaborate with Leiden University to conduct a Digital Evidence Verification Project. This project will focus on verifying footage of excessive force used by police officers during protests to compile evidence that can be used in litigation and advocacy. We are looking for passionate student volunteers, regardless of major, to join our new legal research team. If you are passionate about current events in the United States or Hong Kong then this is an amazing opportunity to become directly involved in making a real difference and de-institutionalizing racism and excessive force in the justice system.

EIJI seeks to bridge gaps in the international justice system and highlight international human rights law issues around the world through our research and writings. Our partners at Leiden University will be providing expert training to our volunteer researchers so no prior knowledge of digital verification is necessary to become involved in this fantastic two-month-long summer project. All prospective researchers should be willing and able to commit at least 25 hours a week and should be extremely passionate about international justice and its research. The submission deadline for the application posted below is 12:00 pm on June 11th and interviews will follow from the 12th till the 14th. We hope to hear from many of you soon and look forward to viewing your applications and getting started on this pertinent project.
