Human Rights Index for the Arab Countries

The Librarians Internet Index (10/11/2007) points us
to the UN Development Programme on Governance in
the Arab Region s Human Rights Index for Arab Countries.

The UNDP-POGAR index is "a repository for United Nations
documents pertaining to human rights and the responses,
including reservations by the Arab member states, to the
committees that monitor the core international human
rights treaties."

Documents on the site may be browsed by source, topic, year,
or human rights treaty committee. The site also links to a
list of human rights organizations active in the region and to
books, handbooks, guides, manuals, brochures and periodicals
of related interest.
