The Research Team at Odhikar is responsible for the archival preservation and enhancement of the fact finding reports. This involves the inclusion of legal rights, available data and statistics from previous years and recommendations into the main text of the fact finding reports as well as translation and editing work. The work also involves the preparation of human rights reports, collection of data regarding various human rights abuses throughout the year and writing and publication of various articles on human rights abuses for public knowledge.

Another activity of the Research Unit is to keep international and regional human rights organisations, including Human Rights Watch, Asian Human Rights Commission, OMCT, FIDH and Forum-Asia updated and aware of human rights conditions in Bangladesh. The Research Team is also responsible for the writing of booklets and monographs based on Odhikar’s activities and updating its web page.
