Human Rights Organizations Database

Since its inception, HRI has been committed to maintaining an extensive database of human rights organizations around the world. The Human Rights Organizations database is a comprehensive listing of institutions working in the field of human rights. The database currently holds over 11,000 records and can be searched by name, type, issues addressed, countries the organization works in and other such criteria.

This database contains information on 11474 organizations involved in human rights.

**PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE CURRENTLY IN THE PROCESS OF UPDATING OUR HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANIZATION DATABASE AND IT IS THEREFORE UNAVAILABLE.  WE APOLOGIZE FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE THIS MAY CAUSE.  PLEASE CHECK BACK SHORTLY.**  

Human Rights Academic Programs

In line with our goal to provide human rights information and documentation, HRI has compiled a list of human rights academic programs available in different places throughout the world.  This list is designed to serve as a reference for prospective students and other interested parties.  It contains information on the type of human rights programs, where they are offered, and also includes program descriptions (the list includes information such as continent, country, city, university, name of program, qualification, duration, language).  View the list here.

The United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) has a related project – OHCHR’s Database on Human Rights and Education Training – which provides information on institutions which offer human rights education services and programs that foster human rights learning.  Prospective students and others may also wish to consult the UN database at the following address for further information on human rights programs: http://hre.ohchr.org/hret/intro.aspx

If you would like to add your organization’s program offerings, please send your information using the same headings in the Excel file to info@hri.ca. New entries will be added on a quarterly basis.

HRI thanks our volunteer, Suzanne Ballard, who compiled this list in Summer, 2012.
