This chapter examines the selection, design and use of indicators to measure project-level human rights impacts. Generally, literature has focused on human rights indicators from the perspective of the state. More recently, there has been a movement towards measuring and reporting initiatives that address the impact of business on human rights. However, these initiatives often lack the ability to measure actual outcomes at the project level. This chapter considers how the application of indicators in human rights impact assessment (HRIA) may be useful at the project level to measure outcomes. The chapter explores the role of different types of indicators and how they can be used at various stages of the HRIA process, as well as how lessons from other fields of impact assessment might improve the use of indicators in HRIA. The chapter concludes with a discussion on dilemmas and opportunities for improving the use of human rights indicators in impact assessment.
