|Description:||This is the official web site for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR). Of primary importance is access to UN treaties and international instruments, the treaty body database, the charter-based bodies database, and hundreds of translations of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR).
The treaty body database provides documents and information issued since 1992 by the six monitoring committees (also known as "treaty monitoring" or "treaty bodies"). These committees are the Human Rights Committee; the Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights; the Committee against Torture; the Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination; the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women; and the Committee on the Rights of the Child.
