The index visualization is fully available here. In this section, we store data and expert comments.
This index is created by a group of experts under the overall coordination of the Belarusian Helsinki Committee.
It provides a general assessment of the human rights situation in Belarus and evaluates specific rights, their components, and indicators of an ideal state of human rights in three categories: social and economic rights, civil and political rights, and general human rights measures.
We created this index for three reasons:
- to allow interested professionals to quickly assess the overall human rights situation in Belarus rather than gathering information from scattered sources;
- to demonstrate how the situation is evolving;
- to indicate the direction of human rights reforms that our country needs.
