International Human Rights Reports

The International Human Rights Reports are published, in print and online, four times a year by the Human Rights Law Centre of the University of Nottingham.

They are a collection of judgements and decisions from the following bodies:

United Nations Treaty Monitoring Bodies


Regional human rights bodies

Cases are selected on the basis of their significance or contribution to development of international human rights law. Each case is prefaced by a headnote, which summarises the main facts and legal arguments of the case.

In addition, IHRR Online offers access to informed, critical comments which highlight the significance of the case.

Comments are written by the following contributors:

  • Marie Auter - CAT (University of Nottingham)
  • Prof Peter Bartlett - CRPD (University of Nottingham)
  • Dr Ruth Brittle - CRC (Nottingham Trent University)
  • Carla Buckley - HRC (University of Nottingham)
  • Prof Clara Burbano Herrera - Inter-American Court of Human Rights (Ghent University)
  • Daniel Cerqueira - Inter-American Commission of Human Rights (Due Process of Law Foundation)
  • Prof David Harris - HRC, CEDAW, CESCR, ECSR (University of Nottingham)
  • Dr David Keane - CERD (Dublin City University)
  • Prof Dominic McGoldrick - HRC (University of Nottingham)
  • Dr Adamantia Rachovitsa - African Court and Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights (University of Groningen)
  • Silvia Serrano Guzmán - Inter-American Court and Commission of Human Rights (Georgetown University)
