The JURIS database is a central repository of the jurisprudence of the United Nations Treaty Bodies (Committees).

It facilitates access to decisions on individual complaints on human rights violations by eight treaty bodies and aims at assisting the public, States, national human rights institutions, civil society, academia, as well as the United Nations and international regional mechanisms to research the vast body of legal interpretation of international human rights law as it has evolved over the past years.

It may also provide guidance to persons preparing complaints to be submitted to the Committees by providing access to the views and decisions taken by them on specific human rights issues regarding different countries.
