“Monitoring social media output for you and your organisation!”

I am Lena, a German student at Leiden University’s International Studies. At the same time, I am a student fellow at the Peace Informatics Lab.

I joined the lab in February 2014. It provided a great opportunity to be part of data-driven innovation for human rights purposes, and enabled me to challenge my own knowledge and skills. At the Peace Informatics Lab, I am mainly responsible for the Impact Tracker, which was developed in partnership with Human Rights Watch.

From May onwards, I will work as an intern at the International Criminal Court, here in The Hague
