- Collection Procedures
- Most of the information about the organizations was coded from each organization’s website rather than from the Human Rights Internet. For those cases that did not have websites, information was coded from organizational profiles within the HRI directory, which contain brief descriptions of each organizations’ mission, activities, etc.
- Sampling Procedures
- The cases in this dataset are human rights organizations and programs that were initially identified using the “organizations database” by the Human Rights Internet (HRI). It contains only those organizations that were among those classified by HRI as “religious oriented” (n=826).
