About The Iran Human Rights Documentation Center:
The Iran Human Rights Documentation Center (IHRDC) is an autonomous and strictly non-partisan organization which was initiated by a group of human rights advocates, scholars and lawyers.  Its work is intended to remedy a deficit in the systematic, objective and analytical documentation of the human rights situation in the Islamic Republic of Iran since the 1979 revolution. The IHRDC is based on the view that creating an authoritative and accessible record will help raise public awareness of accountability and the rule of law in Iran , and is essential for a peaceful transition to democratic rule and long-term national reconciliation. The IHRDC focuses on allegations of the most serious violations of human rights, such as murder, torture, unlawful imprisonment, enforced disappearance, sexual violence, and persecution on political, religious or gender grounds.
