The Fundamental Rights Agency has published its Handbook on the establishment and accreditation of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) in the European Union.

The Handbook includes a step-by-step guide of the accreditation process, with examples of concrete practices related to such issues as their powers, independence and mandate. The Handbook also shows accreditation trends and lists the applicable international standards. It has been published alongside a collection of case studies outlining the experiences of NHRIs in selected Member States.
