The Danish Institute for Human Rights publishes an annual report entitled Human Rights in Denmark each December. The report is a review of legislation, decisions, opinions and government initiatives within the field of human rights in Denmark. In addition, we regularly publish reports on issues relating to specific human rights and equal treatment. The annual report covers the period from October to October. It includes any criticical comments and decisions concerning Denmark, which are delivered by the UN, the Council of Europe or the European Court of Human Rights.
The report is divided up according to the general rights safeguarded by the European Convention for the Protection of Human and Fundamental Freedoms. In addition to these rights, the Status Report also includes general social, economic and cultural rights as well as the special rights that apply to women, children, refugees, disabled persons and ethnic minorities.
"Human Rights in Denmark" is published in Danish each year on the 10 December - on UN International Human Rights Day. The English version is usually published six months later.
