To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the United Nations, the Dag Hammarskjöld Library produced an online exhibition of pictures in 70 key documents with highlights on the organization’s work in the areas of peace and security, humanitarian assistance, development, and human rights. This online exhibit can be viewed under the research guides at http://research.un.org/en/UN70
At present, the exhibit with documents 1941-1965 is currently available while new documents will be added on a monthly basis. Documents after 1965 will be released in late April 2015 onwards. Check back then and vote for your favourite important documents of the decade.

The UN Human Rights Office has recently launched a major online database of Treaty Bodies’ case law, which is known as Jurisprudence, http://juris.ohchr.org. It forms as a starting resource of the human rights recommendations and findings issued by various Committees* in their work on individual cases.
The database was developed based on data originally from the Netherlands Institute of Human Rights (SIM) of Utrecht University School of Law since the mid-1990s.
It contains case law indexed by various categories with search criteria including Region, State, year of publication, subject keywords, sessions and type of decisions.
* The Committees that can receive and consider individual complaints are:
Human Rights Committee (CCPR)
Committee against Torture (CAT)
Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW)
Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD)
Committee on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD)
Committee on Enforced Disappearances (CED)
Committee on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (CESCR)
Committee on the Rights of the Child (CRC)
