Abstract

This article discusses human rights indicators for assessing state compliance with international human rights. It analyses the use of human rights indicators before treaty bodies, how human rights aspects are to be integrated into these indicators and what conceptual framework must be developed for their establishment. The article also examines the different kinds of data required for human rights indicators, the way in which indicators relating to both civil and political and economic, social and cultural rights could be developed as well as the types of human rights indicators that could be used. The article concludes with how to make human rights indicators a useful instrument for monitoring state compliance with international human rights.
