ND-Burma cooperate with the “Documentation Affinity Group”, together with International Center for Transitional Justice (ICTJ) and the leading documentation centers around the world, from the former Yugoslavia, Guatemala, Iraq, Afghanistan, and South Africa to share information and techniques, and work together to address the constraints shared by its members.
The group, which plans to meet three or four times per year, would also call in international experts to help think through solutions to various technical documentation problems.
The Documentation Affinity Group (DAG) was established in 2005 by the ICTJ and five partner organizations as a peer-to-peer network with a primary focus on human rights documentation. Documenting Truth collects the best practices derived from the work of six organizations in Cambodia, Guatemala, Burma, Iraq, Serbia and the United States. Its goal is to provide useful lessons for groups documenting abuses around the world, working towards the protection and promotion of truth, and establishing just and democratic societies.

"Yes, end the rule of the brutal military junta and impress on them that they are going to be indicted before the International Criminal Court for all their gross violations of human rights and their crimes against humanity."
