HuriSearch is a human rights search engine. It enables you to search the content of over 5000 websites. In total over ten million pages of human rights-specific web content!
HuriSearch is part of a wider HURIDOCS research initiative started in 2003, to harness technologies for internet search, for use by human rights organizations in their documentation work.
Because HuriSearch indexes only human rights websites, this means that it retrieves only results that are relevant to human rights. For example, a search for “women” will list results about discrimination of women, and violence against women. Results from general search engines like Google, for the same search, would be very different!
Search results are ranked by relevance, and not by popularity. This gives researchers access to valuable information produced by smaller and lesser know country-specific or theme-specific organizations.
Search results can also be sorted by type of source organization, by source organization, by source country, even by type of document – this makes it possible to see who is publishing what about a given topic.
