    National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) are a vital part of the
    country-level human rights protection system. This report, published
    10 years after FRA’s first in-depth study on NHRIs, looks at such
    bodies in the EU, as well as the Republic of North Macedonia, the
    Republic of Serbia, and the United Kingdom of Great Britain and
    Northern Ireland. It explores relevant developments, challenges to
    their effectiveness and ways to maximise their impact.

    The Charter is most effective, and has a real impact on people’s lives, when
    parliaments, governments and courts at local, regional and national levels all actively
    apply it. The national sphere is particularly relevant. A strong fundamental rights
    architecture and committed national governments and parliaments are key to letting
    the Charter unfold its potential at this level. Civil society organisations (CSOs) and
    national human rights institutions (NHRIs) are also crucial given their contributions to
    the protection and promotion of Charter rights.

De nationale menneskerettighedsinstitutioner er en afgørende del af systemet til beskyttelse af menneskerettigheder på nationalt plan. Ved at skabe større bevidsthed, yde rådgivning, overvåge og stille myndighederne til ansvar har de en central rolle med hensyn til at navigere mellem nutidens store menneskerettighedsudfordringer — og tackle både vedvarende problemstillinger som diskrimination og ulighed og nye spørgsmål som f.eks. konsekvenserne af kunstig intelligens og covid-19-pandemien for rettighederne.

National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) protect and promote human rights at the national level, tackling systemic problems and raising fundamental rights awareness. To equip NHRIs to perform their role well, they should have, among other qualities, independence, powers and a broad mandate, in accordance with the so-called ‘Paris Principles’ which were adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 1993 and set forth the primary minimum standards for an effective NHRI.
