Ms. Anne-Marie Brook

Co-founder of the Human Rights Measurement Initiative. This is a platform for collecting and disseminating information on human rights from two countries in the ME region - Jordan and Saudi Arabia. We plan to expand to include all countries in the region as soon as possible. For now, across Jordan and Saudi Arabia, we have a network of dozens of human rights experts who contribute information on events in their countries via our annual expert survey. For Saudi Arabia in particular, many of our experts are based outside of the country for safety reasons. Please contact me if interested in human rights data for the ME region. While not an expert on the region myself, our network permits the collection of unique and sensitive information that is not otherwise available.
