A comprehensive Human Rights Timeline has been created by the Library of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR Library), with help from the United Nations Library at Geneva.

The Human Rights Timeline represents – through international instruments, official UN documents and conferences – the major events that have shaped the international human rights scene since the early 20th century, including adoption of treaties, recognition of the importance of the protection of the human rights by the United Nations and the work of the UN in the field of human rights.
