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.
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.
