Universal Human Rights Index (UHRI)

The Universal Human Rights Index (UHRI) is designed to facilitate access to human rights recommendations issued by three key pillars of the United Nations human rights protection system: the Treaty Bodies established under the international human rights treaties as well as the Special Procedures and the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) of the Human Rights Council.

The UHRI aims at assisting States in the implementation of these recommendations and at facilitating the work of national stakeholders such as National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs); non-governmental organisations; civil society and academics as well as the United Nations.

The UHRI enables users to produce overviews of recommendations by country (summary by country); by Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); or by Human Rights Voluntary Goals (HRVGs); as well as to perform basic and advanced searches by using filters.
