Human Rights Maps

This page contains links to the different human rights maps which I publish on this blog, now and again. These maps form part of one of my main efforts here: a data and statistical approach to human rights issues. More on this here.

The maps here are usually world maps or maps for certain continents or countries. Of course they all contain information on particular countries, but if you want to select the blogposts for one particular country only, you may want to do a search instead.

To view all the maps at once click here.
