Issues: National Human Rights Commissions

OHCHR plays a major role in encouraging and assisting the creation of independent national human rights institutions, such as a human rights commission, to help realise human rights in each country. The purpose of such bodies is to advise Governments and parliaments on international human rights obligations and on human rights protection needs in the country.
