Where can I find a list of human rights treaties?
Last Updated: Jun 21, 2016
The Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) website maintains a list of the core international human rights instruments.
OHCHR has also published a multi-volume set titled, "Human Rights : a compilation of international instruments," available from many libraries.
Additional information about the UN documentation about human rights, as well as additional resources for research, can be found in our research guide, UN Documentation: Human Rights.
