Universal Human Rights Index of United Nations Documents

The Universal Human Rights Index (Index) is designed primarily to facilitate access to human rights documents issued by the UN human rights treaty bodies and the special procedures of the Human Rights Council.

The Index provides the Human Rights Council, international institutions, governments, national human rights institutions, NGOs, universities and the interested public with a new tool for searching the observations and recommendations of these expert bodies. It is now possible to quickly locate relevant information in the large amount of existing UN documentation.

The Index offers instant access to objective and comprehensive UN information on human rights situations around the world. The information compiled in the Index will enable users to gain an international perspective on national and regional human rights developments, as well as an overview on cooperation between States and international institutions.
