Find with tags

The text is coded with five types of tags:

  • Based on the country to which the document refers.
  • Based on the region in which the country is located.
  • Based on the year in which the document was published.
  • Based on the institution that published the document.
  • Generic tags.

Find documents with the search engine

The links above do not allow a combined search, e.g. ‘What recommendations has CAT made in 2014?’. The search engine does offer that possibility. To do so, i:cat p:2014 must be entered in the search field 1Click on the magnifying glass in the menu bar to see the search field.; i: and p: ensure that specific searches are made for the institution and the year of publication respectively. More ways to use the database:

  • i:crc searches for publications of the UN Children’s Rights Committee,
  • p:2015 searches for documents published in 2015,
  • c:germany searches for documents related to Germany,
  • r:asia searches for documents relating to countries in the region Asia,
  • intersex searches for documents containing the word intersex,
  • intersex specific searches for documents containing the words intersex and specific,
  • “intersex specific” searches for documents in which intersex and specific are juxtaposed.

The search function only supports ‘and’, not ‘not’ and ‘or’. You can combine search terms, but at the moment there are only a limited number of documents in the index, so it is likely that a complex search will result in “nothing found”.

Results by organisation or group

In this (experimental) presentation you can select an intergovernmental organizations or a UN regional group and see which countries in that group have received one or more recommendations on intersex rights from one or more UN Treaty Committees. States for which no recommendations on intersex rights are known are not shown.
