WatchTheMed is an online mapping platform to monitor the deaths and violations of migrants' rights at the maritime borders of the EU. The project brings together a wide network of organisations, activists and researchers in the developpement of a powerful tool to monitor those who control migration and bring an end the impunity. The online map allows to spatialise incidents across the complex legal and political geography of the Mediterranean Sea, which is essential to determine responsibility for violations at sea. The participatory nature of the platform allows many different actors to to indicate ongoing situations of distress.
