Defending Dignity Part II: Collecting and analyzing data

CESR and the Asia Pacific Forum (APF) present a new manual - ‘Defending Dignity’ - designed to strengthen the role of National Human Rights Institutions in monitoring and enforcing economic, social and cultural rights. The manual is complemented by a series of motion graphics and explanatory videos. Part II of the manual tackles collecting and analysing data. After defining the right question to ask, the next step is to collect the data that can help answer that question. This section discusses the particular advantages of integrating quantitative data in research and explains how to gather data from secondary and primary sources.
