Human rights guides, information sheets, and booklets

The Commission publishes human rights guides (formerly referred to as interpretive bulletins), information sheets and booklets related to human rights law. Human rights guies offer a comprehensive discussion of important human rights topics. They cite case law, provide descriptions of legal principles drawn from the case law, and offer practical information. The information sheets cover a range of important human rights issues, providing a brief overview of the topic and, in some instances, citing case law.
