The center sets for itself a work strategy aiming to build a bank of knowledge. This strategy is based on the integration of three overlapping stages that guarantee to turn the information from its simple form as it happens in the scene of events into a more comprehensive, deeper and clearer image. These three stages are documentation, classification and analysis. Each one of the three stages includes a set of specialized processes and activities that are managed independently by a department for supervision and follow-up as follows:
Documentation Department: It’s the information gate of the center, it oversees the safe arrival of information according to the documentation standards applicable at the center. This department deals mainly with the collection and checking of information; it prepares for transferring information to the archive department.
A central follow-up unit connects all the three departments together, and works on coordinating the whole process in its three stages with direct supervision from the center’s management responsible for providing advisory expertise and support services as needed for the operation of the center. This includes various sides such as advocacy, finance, translation, design, and technical production. The final goal is to enrich the bank of knowledge.
