Data and human rights

The global human rights community has access to more data, from a wider range of sources, than ever before. However, it is not always clear how reliable and helpful these data are, and how to best use them in human rights work. In this series, OpenGlobalRights authors explore the types, sources and uses of human rights data. To obtain the fullest possible picture, we recommend reading articles in other openGlobalRights series, including, public opinion and human rightsevaluation and impact assessment in human rights, social science experiments and more.
