Iran Human Rights Sanctions Tracker

The Iran Human Rights Sanctions Tracker (IHRST) is a comprehensive, searchable, and sortable database of current and former Iranian regime officials sanctioned by the United States, European Union, and United Kingdom for human rights abuses. Until now, it's been hard to find the names of every person sanctioned for violating the human rights of the Iranian people. In the U.S., for example, such persons have been sanctioned by different agencies and under the authority of different laws and regulations. Additionally, the U.S., EU, and U.K. have sanctioned some of the same persons and entities but spelled their names differently, further complicating research.

The IHRST eliminates these problems. It is searchable by all variant name spellings. It also easily identifies which Iranians have been sanctioned by some governments but not others, thereby drawing attention to the gaps in current sanctions lists. Thus, the IHRST can be a useful resource for policymakers, researchers, and the general public.

Note: the current Iran Human Rights Sanctions Tracker is in beta and new data will be added regularly.
