The first global initiative to track the human rights performance of countries

Why does the world need HRMI?

Because for human rights to improve, they need to be measured.

HRMI is unique because we are:

Comprehensive – we will produce metrics for the full range of human rights listed in the International Bill of Human Rights.

Collaborative – we bring together the expertise of human rights practitioners around the world, and academics specialising in human rights measurement.

Independent   – given the political sensitivity of the topic, we consider independence essential to ensuring our metrics are accurate and transparent. All funding secured will be from ethical bodies that remain at arm's length from our operations.
