Supporting NHRIs address growing challenges for human rights defenders
GANHRI’s Global Action Plan to support the protection and promotion of human rights defenders and civic space is now available in English.
More than 150 participants from across the globe took part in the 2022 GANHRI Annual Meeting, held in March.
GANHRI members elected as their new Chairperson Maryam Abdullah Al Attiya of Qatar and as their new Secretary Amina Bouayach of Morocco. The General Assembly also ratified and renewed Bureau members from the European region.
The Knowledge Exchange discussed role and experiences of NHRIs, both being users of the digital space to implement their human rights mandate, and as defenders of human rights, monitoring and protecting rights and freedoms online.
The knowledge exchange provided an inclusive platform for NHRIs from all regions to share insights and experiences on both the opportunities and challenges presented to their mandate in the era of digitalisation.
