Idea Sketch | Proposal


Idea pitch

"No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile" Act 9 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. This act is is not effective, mainly becuase it was almost impossible to collect all data of all prisoners.
We are making it possible. is a crowd sourcing platform for prisoners’ data and cases. The data is verified by NGOs, Supervised by UN.
Data analytics, statistics and actual legal data of thousands of cases can be made available, to stakeholders.

Where will your idea take place?

Gent or Brussels, Belgium

Why does Europe need your idea?

Human Rights organizations can file around 100 cases of arbitrar detention per year. This means in countries with tens of thousands of detainees(Russia, Egypt, KSA,...) we need centuri to collect this data.
Our challenge, is to make this data available now, and verified. So that their stories would be told, and human rights organization can react. UN will have all relevant accurate statistics to asses the situation in the world.
The arbitrary detainees, will face easier imprisonment condition

What is your impact?

Making Act 9 of Human rights declaration effective:
"No one shall be subjected to arbitrary arrest, detention or exile"

How do you get there?

By organizing an online platform, we aim to bring people together. People can submit cases of friends, relatives, acquaintances to the platform which can then be used as a database (crowdsourcing).
In an attempt to bring all cases as fast as possible online with a high credibility we try to work together with Human Rights Organizations. These last can verify with their experience and their methods the cases submitted online.
That platform can also be used by visitors as a means to track the stories, articles, legal procedures, decisions etc. of the detainees.
The platform will enable also a system to track all cases per region, city or country. That makes it easy for everyone to find the detainees which are located in their neighborhood. Statistics can be collected as a consequence

What is your story?


Who are you doing it for?

For every prisoner worldwide who's a victim of arbitrary detention, arrest or exile

What makes your idea stand apart?

We believe activating Act 9 of Human Rights declaration, will bring more justice to the world.

With our idea, now tens of thousands of lives can be saved, stories can be told and roots of terrorism or exile can be eradicated.

With our idea, Human rights organizations around the world will be enabled to do literally 1000 times more of human welfare.
