This project involves a partnership with Indonesia's leading human rights monitors to establish and disseminate a joint database of fatal shootings of drugs suspects in Indonesia. There were 99 such shootings in 2017, a significant increase on previous years. Shootings have continued at a similar rate in 2018. In coordination with Amnesty International Indonesia, The Commission for Missing Persons and Victims of Violence, and Community Legal Aid, Dr McRae has established a Google Form to enable all organisations to input data to a common spreadsheet. Historical data is also available for 2017, 2016 and 2015. The internship focuses on establishing a verification workflow for raw data on common spreadsheet to ensure optimal coding for analysis and visualisation, and advice on appropriate software platforms for visualisation and mapping.
