CIRI - Cingranelli-Richards
The Cingranelli-Richards (CIRI) Human Rights dataset documents how states deal with human rights, how they adhere to and disregard 15 different human rights worldwide for 1981 to 2011. It calculates the Physical Integrity Rights Index to be able to show data on the adherence to the right of physical integrity. Physical integrity is a human right and contains the absence of torture, extrajudicial killings, political imprisonment and the disappearances of unwanted persons. The values of the index range from 0 to 8, with 8 representing a total adherence of that human right and 0 represents no adherence to the right to physical integrity.
