Visualizing Human Rights Data


Dr. Susan Randolph, Professor Emeritus (Economics), and Co-Director of the Research Program on Economic and Social Rights at UConn’s HRI, has been part of a major international collaborative initiative to create a comprehensive suite of human rights measures. The Human Rights Measurement Initiative (HRMI) has adopted the right measures comprising the SERF Index, developed in consultation with the HRI’s Research Program on Economic and Social Rights as their rights metrics.  They have just launched an expanded website that provides a wealth of data visualization tools.  See HRMI aims to be the go to data source for metrics summarizing human rights performance in countries around the world and in so doing provide leverage for advocacy groups, researchers, treaty monitoring bodies, global decision makers and ordinary people to advance human rights.
