The SCSL was the first tribunal to recognise and convict for the use of child soldiers and forced marriage. Charles Taylor, President of Liberia was the first sitting head of state to be indicted and convicted for war crimes. All of the cases have been completed and the Court remains in existence until all sentences have been served.
Eko was contracted to create a fully managed document and video archiving system to collate and present these cases. On the http://www.scsldocs.org/ site you can view the complete archive of the SCSL trials, view court room videos, read transcripts and search the official records.
The design was kept intentionally simple and clear to allow fast and accessible navigation for lawyers, the press and the public on multiple devices. Don't let the simplicity of the design fool you though, the content and technology is complex even though the end result is simple to use... which was a success criteria in itself.
We'll be releasing a more detailed case study soon that looks behind the scenes at the technologies involved, from OCR (Optical Character Recognition) to automated video transcoding and indexing against transcripts.
At the very least you should take a look at the search system where we developed some new ways to navigate large data sets with ease.
