The University of Queensland Library has recently subscribed to: Human Rights Documents Online

Material from Human Rights Internet (HRI) in Ottawa, Canada.

A full text searchable online database of human rights documents published since 1980, from 417 non-governmental human rights organizations worldwide.

Access is via the UQ Library at:

http://library.uq.edu.au/record=e1001856~S7

You can browse documents available by region and country or use the search function to search for documents by country, organisation or a word in the title of particular documents. For tips on searching the database select Search options.

Please take a moment to explore the database as it¹s wonderful resource of source documents and 'grey literature' that is often otherwise difficult to locate or obtain. These documents emanate from 417 non-governmental human rights organizations

(NGOs) worldwide, some of which have a universal scope, whilst others focus on the attainment of human rights in a specific area of the world. The collection currently covers the years 1980-2004 and spans a broad range of human rights issues.

 

The organizations whose material is represented are concerned with a broad range of human rights issues: with the rights of indigenous peoples, refugees, women, labour, children; with freedom of expression, freedom of association, freedom of assembly, and freedom of conscience; with the abolition of torture, political killings, disappearances, slavery and genocide; with the fate of political prisoners, with the rule of law and due process; with political participation and self-determination; and with the fulfillment of basic human needs.
