The work of the Centre is conducted through documentation and investigation of human rights violations, provision of legal aid and counseling for both individuals and groups, and preparation of research articles relevant to such issues as the human rights situation and the rule of law. It has made a list of all who died in the Gaza war of 2008-9 with name, age, sex, occupation, address, date of death, date of attack, place of attack, governate and combatant/civilian status.

It also documents human rights violations and extrajudicial killings by name in regular reports. Central to its work are databases and statistical analyses.
