Verisk Maplecroft’s suite of human rights products feature expert analysis and innovative mapping tools to enable the assessment, comparison and monitoring of risks and responsibilities across supply chains, operations and investments worldwide.

Verisk Maplecroft's new 2016 Human Rights Dataset is now available

Verisk Maplecroft’s 2016 Human Rights Dataset includes indices, scorecards, interactive maps and status of ratifications for 14 major international treaties. The human rights dataset has been developed to enable multinational organisations to identify, prioritise and manage various human rights and development risks to global operations in 198 countries.

The 2016 Human Rights Dataset provides:

  • 33 different human rights and development indices and maps clustered into five key categories: Human Security, Labour Rights and Protection, Civil and Political Rights, Access to Remedy and Development
  • A detailed, succinct and easy-to-use tool to assess, quantify and compare human rights and development risks and develop early warning strategies to prevent or mitigate them
  • An evaluation of the severity of violations with methodological reference to "structural-process-outcome" indicators developed by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights
  • Better reflection of business risks and responsibilities with the use of the UN "Protect, Respect and Remedy" framework for business and human rights in the methodology
  • The ability to understand, analyse, compare and chart human rights risk data for every country and download it in a spreadsheet format
  • The ability to view, download and print country scorecards and human rights risk indices, maps, ratification status and graphics

More substantive analysis is available through Verisk Maplecroft's human rights country briefings and in-depth reports. These can be tailored to a client's needs for any country, sector or issue.
