Database of U N Human Rights Agreements

The Database of UN Human Rights Agreements

Welcome to the Database of UN Human Rights Agreements. Here, you can access information on all UN human rights conventions, covenants, and protocols created between 1945 and 2006.

I created this dataset in the hope of encouraging more widespread and systematic research on international human rights law. Do you have questions about the database? The FAQ on this page and the information on other pages on this site will hopefully be of use. If you do not find an answer to your question, please contact Jana von Stein at Your feedback on the data would be particularly useful at this point in time, so please feel free to send comments.
