General Comments, Special Issue Papers and Human Rights Fact Sheets

Sometimes there is a need to further outline the human rights obligations pertained in the various conventions, declaration e.t.c. To do so the OHCHR and the human rights bodies both the Charter based and the Treaty based publish documents. The Treaty based bodies publish General Comments or General Recommendations as the OHCHR publishes Special Issue Papers, Human Rights Fact Sheets and other.

In this section there is an introduction to these documents and a link to them.
