The role of national human rights institutions in promoting, tracking and reporting on domestic compliance with international human rights norms

  •  Geneva, Switzerland
  •  13:00 - 14:00

The event will introduce the overall ‘Implementation Agenda’ to national human rights institutions (NHRIs) representatives, underscore the crucial role of NHRIs, and showcase different good practice examples of how NHRIs are currently engaging, and/or are planning to engage, with domestic implementation processes.

The side event will thereby allow for an initial collation of good practice examples, identify common threads, and disseminate and propagate those good practices and principles among NHRIs. This aims to support their unique role in helping turn universal norms into local realities for people on the ground.
