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:

  • Prof David Harris - HRC, CEDAW, CESCR (University of Nottingham)
  • Prof Peter Bartlett - CRPD (University of Nottingham)
  • Prof Clara Burbano Herrera - Inter-American Court of Human Rights (Ghent University)
  • Prof Dominic McGoldrick - HRC (University of Nottingham)
  • Dr Ruth Brittle – CRC (Nottingham Trent University)
  • Dr Mando Rachovitsa - African Cases (University of Groningen)
  • Silvia Serrano Guzmán - Inter-American Court and Commission of Human Rights (Georgetown University)
  • Sangeeta Shah - CED (University of Nottingham)
  • Marie Auter - CAT (University of Nottingham)


Subscription is available to individual and organisations, in the UK and overseas, print only, online only or print and online.

IHRR is published in January, April, June and October and the print version is mailed to a subscriber’s address shortly thereafter.

IHRR Online offers access to ten years of back catalogue (2010-2020) and further back volumes are being added constantly, with the aim to make available the full collection dating back to 1994 in due course.
