FREE TEXT: The Events Standard Formats are a methodology for using the "violations" approach

social and cultural. They are integrated, flexible and adaptable, and cover the various aspects of
documenting human rights events.
This document contains formats with defined fields and instructions to assist organisations in
documenting human rights-related events and in designing their databases, and for exchange of
information among organisations.
