SDGs and the UN Human Rights Mechanisms

본 섹션은 덴마크 인권연구소(The Danish Institute for Human Rights)가 제공한 도구를 활용하여 SDGs(지속가능발전목표)와 인권 사이의 연관성을 설명한다.

덴마크 인권연구소의 <SDG-인권 데이터 익스플로러>는 유엔 조약 기구들의 권고, 국가별 정례 인권검토(Universal Periodic Review; UPR),

유엔 인권 이사회 하의 특별 조치를 169개 SDGs 내 세부목표와 연결시켜 보여준다.

이를 바탕으로 북한인권정보센터는 국가별 정례 인권검토 3주기 동안 북한이 받은 모든 권고를 분석하였으며 이를 17개의 SDGs와 연계했다.
