The Security and Human Rights Monitor (SHRM) is a platform for debate, analysis, information, and developments relevant to the mandate of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE). It focuses in particular on the inter-relationship between security and human rights.
The SHRM is a combination of the respected journal Security and Human Rights (founded in 1990 and formerly known as Helsinki Monitor) and the former blog which was attached to the journal.
The SHRM is administered under the auspices of the Netherlands Helsinki Committee (NHC), thanks to the generous support of donors. Content is produced under the guidance of an editorial board.
SHRM includes several components. These include policy (predominantly opinion and analysis), news, and interviews. Furthermore, readers will also find a selection of open-access, peer-reviewed articles, published by the acclaimed publisher Brill/Nijhoff.
