Human Rights and Statistics: Getting the Record Straight

Citation: University of Pennsylvania Press, 1992

The objective of this volume is to explore the possibilities for improving the analysis of global human rights with the assistance of statistical and other quantitative tools. The application of such methods is not limited to scholarly or scientific pursuits; it can also help to strengthen governmental policy making, advocacy, and education. The challenge of promoting better methods for assessing human rights is one which should be shared by all persons and all professions concerned with building a more humane international community.
