Qualitative Data Management: Existing Technologies and Their Relevance to Some Issues of Human Rights
Presentation by Grigory Ohotin, Denis Volkov, Daniil Beylinson (Moscow) "Qualitative Data Management: Existing Technologies and Their Relevance to Some Issues of Human Rights" within the framework of "Human Rights" Seminar (58-60 Galernaya Street).
The seminar will be devoted to discussion of management of qualitative databanks (transcripts of interviews, official documents, images and so forth) and its uses by NGOs and civil society as a whole. For instances, many NGOs have archives that are not accessible for the public. It is not enough to place them on-line since the search for relevant information within these databanks may be time- and resource- consuming. It also requires some specialized skills. The seminar will offer an overview of existing approaches to management of qualitative data and specialized computer programs that are created to facilitate this task.
