A new database from the Human Rights Consortium and the Tom Lantos Institute

Thursday 29 November 2018

The HRC and the Tom Lantos Institute is pleased to launch a new resource, minorityforum.info. The database compiles statements from the 2008-2016 session of the Forum on Minority Issues, as well as key minority rights standards, reports, and recommendations in the field of minority rights. The documents in the database were obtained from the official websites of the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, through online submissions, and through other research efforts. The database is envisaged as a searchable, user-friendly resource for civil society actors including minorities, states, international organisations, academics, and other stakeholders working for the human rights of minorities.
