Monitoring, Reporting, and Fact-finding

The monitoring, reporting, and fact-finding (MRF) project is a multi-annual research and policy project geared toward producing research, capacity building measures, and practical methodological tools for practitioners engaged in MRF mechanisms. To this end, the Program on Humanitarian Policy and Conflict Research (HPCR) has engineered the HPCR Group of Professionals on Monitoring, Reporting and Fact-finding, a collective of high-level MRF practitioners that has collaborated with HPCR in producing the HPCR Advanced Practitioner's Handbook on Commissions of Inquiry.

Handbook

The HPCR Advanced Practitioner's Handbook on Commissions of Inquiry draws from past professionl practice in the domain of MRF and offers methodological considerations to inform future MRF missions. To read the Handbook, click here.

HPCR's extensive research on the methoological approaches used and policy dilemmas faced by MRF practitioners aims to contribute to enhancing the ability of practitioners and scholars to understand the experiences and impacts of MRF exercises.

HPCR's work in the domain of MRF has been undertaken in collaboration with the HPCR Group of Professionals on Monitoring, Reporting, and Fact-finding, a collective of high-level MRF practitioners that HPCR engineered.
