This site contains links to and short reviews of worldwide legal databases on human rights. The guide is an ongoing project. We welcome comments and suggestions. Please send any  via the web form available on the link "suggestions form" in the left sidebar on all pages.

Analysis of each database is continuing.  Members may assist this task where any particular database has not been reviewed or needs completing or improving. Please submit your own review via the Analysis submission web form available via the link in the left side bar on all pages. 

We have Pernille Meum to thank for all the data provided that has been placed on this site to date and Dave Palmer for driving the project forward.

The links below will lead to the databases.  The "search this site" function above is a useful tool. Lionel Blackman 7th May 2012.
