The Human Rights Measurement Initiative is part of a global movement building a world where all people can flourish. We track the human rights progress of countries, producing robust data that anyone can use to push for improvements in how governments treat people. We are independent and non-profit.
What gets measured gets improved: if something isn’t being systematically measured, it can be more easily overlooked and undervalued. HRMI data make it easier for decision-makers to monitor their progress, and prioritise human rights. Advocacy based on sound information is one of the key drivers of change.
Eventually, we aim to measure all human rights as defined in international law. We have begun with two core sets of data measuring five economic and social rights and eight civil and political rights. Our scores are published annually on the Rights Tracker, which is a certified Digital Public Good. We have also established a company, Rights Intelligence, to help the private sector make use of our human rights data.
