ECRI notes that the Luxembourg Consultative Commission on Human Rights (CCDH) recommended that the government establish a “Human Rights House” combining several national institutions responsible for promoting and protecting human
rights, namely the CCDH, the Centre for Equal Treatment (CET), the Ombudsman Committee for Children’s Rights and the Ombudsman. The possible establishment of a Human Rights House and the attachment of the institutions concerned to parliament
would serve to increase their independence and neutrality.
The Luxembourg authorities have informed ECRI of their support for an identical proposal by the CET but do not, however, refer to enabling it to take part in legal proceedings or
requiring the persons or bodies to which it addresses itself to reply.
Methodology (Qualitative/Quantitative and exact type used, questionnaires etc)
The working methods for the preparation of the reports involve documentary analyses, a visit to the country concerned, and then a confidential dialogue with the national authorities.
Sample details and representativeness
ECRI’s reports are analyses based on a great deal of information gathered from a wide variety of sources.
