About the Database

With over 8’000 documents ranging from 1948 to present, explore our database to find the language you need to advance your advocacy and policy priorities in a few simple clicks.

Without a single location to access all international policy documentation, policy influencers and advocates invest vast time and resources piecing together key information for policy development, including for the advancement of girls’ rights. They are not able to apply an intersectional lens to their analysis of policy, nor are they able to gain a big picture view of girls’ rights within this space.

In order to close this gap, Plan International built its Human Rights Policy Database as a tool to facilitate policy research and language development for advocates at all levels. With over 8’000 documents ranging from 1948 to present, the Database brings in international policy from over 52 producing bodies, including:

  • United Nations General Assembly
  • United Nations Human Rights Council
  • United Nations Special Rapporteurs (Thematic)
  • United Nations Commission on the Status of Women
  • United Nations Security Council
  • And many more!

Our Database is curated to contain both full documents, and their individual paragraphs, which can be easily and quickly filtered by categories such as topic, persons affected, producing body, year and more. It is regularly updated to include the most recent international documents available.
