Data in action

As Human Rights Measurement Initiative (HRMI) data become available, we aim to share reports, stories and case studies of how our metrics are being used. Share your story with us!


If you are using (or would like to use) HRMI data for advocacy, please let us know – we are available to help. Some examples:

Josef Benedict from CIVICUS used HRMI data in an op-ed on Fiji’s human rights record.

New Zealand’s Chief Human Rights Commissioner, Paul Hunt, used HRMI data to argue in an op-ed for the importance of international scrutiny on the country’s human rights performance.


Our economic and social rights metrics are used in many books, journal articles and technical reports.

For a recent publication on HRMI more generally, check out this article in the Journal of Human Rights.

Business sector

  • Please let us know if you are using (or would like to use) HRMI data to support business sector decision-making, minimise risk for investors, or direct capital flows ethically.
