The International Human Rights Fact-Finding Guidelines (The Lund-London Guidelines) were produced by the International Bar Association’s Human Rights Institute (IBAHRI) and the Raoul Wallenberg Institute in 2009. The Guidelines are a useful tool for NGOs and all individuals and organisations engaged in human rights fact-finding and reporting, providing guidelines for ensuring accuracy, objectivity, transparency and credibility to fact-finding visits and reports. Guidelines are currently available in English, Arabic, French, Russian and Spanish.
