EMHOTEP is the database of the Inter-University Centre on Rights and Beliefs (CIDC-ICRB), a university centre of expertise on the protection and promotion of fundamental rights and their convergence with beliefs.

The EMHOTEP database is a database and an analysis tool for actions taken in the field of rights and beliefs or related to hate speech. It brings together, through research carried out by CIDC-ICRB, or external actors wishing to share their actions and practices, all global actions. It disseminates the initiative of the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Faith 4 Rights; it ensures its academic follow-up.

CIDC-ICRB clarified its mandate in 2017 while at the same time strengthening its institutional base by becoming the only structure of the University of Montreal jointly supported by the Centre de recherche en droit public (CRDP; http://www.crdp.umontreal.ca) of the Faculty of Law and the Centre d'étude et de recherche internationales de l'Université de Montréal (CERIUM; http://cerium.umontreal.ca). It works through the involvement of students from Canadian university faculties and departments, supervised by the international experts who make up the EMHOTEP Scientific Committee and its three coordinators: Professor Patrice Brodeur, François Xavier Saluden and Me. Alain Vallières, all of whom are attached to the Université de Montréal in addition to their activities in religious sciences and international and national law.
