This is a list of human rights articles by country.


Citizens of the African nations are provided supranational human rights protection by the African Commission on Human and Peoples' Rights. See also Network of African National Human Rights Institutions.

Asia and Oceania[edit]


The most powerful human rights organization is the European Court of Human Rights, which is the first international court with jurisdiction to deal with cases brought by individuals (not states). See also European Group of National Human Rights Institutions.

Middle East[edit]

Several Middle Eastern and North African countries are signatories on the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) and the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights (ICESCR). However, there is no established international, government-operated human rights article or council for the region, due to factors such as cultural and regional conflict.[1]

North And South America[edit]

Citizens of the North And South American nations have degrees of supranational human rights protection from the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and the Inter-American Court of Human Rights.
