States of Emergency Database


The States of Emergency Database is a legal database which contains legislative texts and other relevant information on states of emergency in Northern Ireland, China, El Slavadore, India, Malaysia, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Turkey and East Timor.

The database was developed to assist international agencies and non-governmental organisations (NGOs) to monitor and, if possible, control human rights abuses during states of emergency.
