Peter Bouckaert

May 01, 2014

As the Emergency Director for Human Rights Watch, Bouckaert is perhaps the organization’s most recognizable name for journalists and other aid workers. He has spent years traveling between conflicts around the world and documenting human rights abuses, working to protect civilians or hold perpetrators accountable if he can’t. A fierce retweeter, Bouckaert’s feed is crucial for on-the-ground information and highlighting local sources. —Andrew Katz
