The Geneva Centre is committed to conducting research that is truly independent and provides insights about human rights issues. The Geneva Centre’s research policy is needs directed.

It aims to focus its research efforts where they are most valuable and to identify areas where existing mechanisms are not fully equipped to promote, protect, or respect human rights. The objectives of our publications are to provide academically sound analyses on relevant human rights-related issues and to identify solutions to advance the promotion of human rights at the global level.

Our publications are distributed to all Permanent Missions present in Geneva, as well as the United Nations agencies, particularly the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR), universities, NGOs, civil society organizations, and other partners of the Centre.

To date, the Geneva Centre has issued 17 books, which are available in both electronic and hard copy versions. Please, contact us if you’d like to receive your copy.
