Alternative Title(s): OHCHR
UN High Commissioner for Human Rights
Available From: http://www2.ohchr.org/english/
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.

The Charter-based bodies database contains human rights documents (reports, resolutions, decisions, summary records, etc.) issued since 1994 by the main bodies with major human rights responsibilities established by the Charter of the United Nations. These bodies are the General Assembly, the Human Rights Council (formerly the Commission on Human Rights), and the Sub-Commission on the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights.

This comprehensive web site contains several search engines and a site map.
