Hurisearch is the only comprehensive search engine specialised in human rights information. Its general objective is to facilitate access to human rights information on the web. Its specific objectives are as follows:
  • To provide human rights professionals with a powerful web research tool.
  • To increase the visibility of information published by human rights organisations, in particular small local organisations with first-hand information.
  • To encourage webmasters to use metadata systematically, thus making human rights information searching much more reliable and efficient.
It targets persons working with or interested in human rights, who need powerful search tools to access up-to-date and relevant information including: human rights monitors and researchers, students and academics, diplomats and persons working in international organisations, politicians and journalists.
