Sustainable partnerships with the communities affected by human rights issues, community based organisations (CBOs), and local and national civil society organisations (CSOs). While PDAP is primarily concerned with the enforced disappearances in the Punjab, we collaborate with and support like-minded organisations, working on similar issues across the whole of India.
Sharing knowledge with lawyers, activists and communities. PDAP has acquired a broad spectrum of knowledge in the course of the project, we have pioneered indigenous documentation with our researchers understanding the complex regional, cultural, religious context of mass state violence and the need for impartial and objective data collection and retention. We are committed to contributing to the capacity-building of the human rights community in India as well as internationally and to continue to develop skills and capacity within our own organisation.
