Besides the database provided by the UNHCHR -Treaty Bodies Search-, there are two others that have organised the documents that are a result of the work by the treaty bodies.

The theme-based search function allows a user to view references to specific topics from the case law of the international adjudicative bodies. The theme-based results include cross-listed references from all of the international adjudicative bodies within a specific theme’s page.
