New Human Rights Research Tool
The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights has launched a useful new research tool, the Universal Human Rights Index: http://www.universalhumanrightsindex.org/. It is a compilation of United Nations documents, thoroughly indexed, that provides rapid access to conclusions and recommendations of the Human Rights Council special procedures (rapporteurs, etc.), concluding observations of treaty bodies and the comments of governments concerned about such observations. It looks to be of enormous assistance to researchers.
