Many of the most important materials of interest to the human rights community are reports and other materials that are rarely reviewed. To fill this gap, the Editors of Human Rights & Human Welfare have developed this page to expose our patrons to these sources that they might not otherwise access.

We have included some of the most important internet resources available on Human Rights. Our essayists may find this page particularly helpful in conducting research for their essays. While this list is hardily comprehensive it is a starting point from which further research may be done. For more detailed listings on specific topical or issue areas please go to our Topical Research Digest section.
