Information on Treaties


Main Treaties and Agreements

We've produced a simple-to-understand guide to the major international human rights treaties, including those on Women, Racial Discrimination, Children and Torture - how they came about, what they say and which countries have signed up.

International treaties chart

With one click, you can measure the progress of any country in ratifying these treaties.

We also explain what the Vienna Declaration is and why it's important. Plus we have sections on the UN Human Rights Commission, regional arrangements in Africa, Europe and the Americas and the International Criminal Court. All with targeted links.

Nowhere else on the web is this information gathered together in such an accessible way.
