Strengthening access to Human Rights Council information
Although Human Rights Council documents are openly available online, they can be difficult to navigate. This creates barriers for human rights defenders who need information related to their cause, especially for those with limited resources.
That’s why we created RightDocs — to strengthen the visibility of Human Rights Council resolutions by making these documents more accessible. RightDocs allows you to identify allies for causes you want to bring to the Council and to understand what has happened in the past; this can often be a powerful entry point for advocates to demand tangible changes.
RightDocs was created with generous input and support from civil society and the diplomatic community. We always welcome potential partnerships or other support for the RightDocs project. If you are interested, please get in touch!
