Media Defence is looking to hire a consultant to develop an open access multimedia Resource Hub which will provide a basis for the network of lawyers to refresh their knowledge and find relevant material for their cases.
The development of the Resource Hub is part of the Digital Rights Advocates Project and will be focused on digital rights and freedom of expression online in East, West and Southern Africa. It will be open, accessible and searchable with content that can easily be copied and pasted into legal briefs. The Resource Hub will work in conjunction with an eReader which is currently under development which will contain some of the long form content, such as modules and manuals, for the Resource Hub.
