“Article 4 and 5 of the Law provides for the CNIDH mandate to promote and protect human rights.

The SCA is of the view that an NHRI´s mandate should be interpreted in a broad and purposive manner to promote a progressive definition of human rights which includes all rights set out in international, regional and domestic instruments, including economic, social and cultural rights.

The SCA encourages the CNIDH to continue to interpret its mandate in a way that promotes the realization of all human rights including social, economic and cultural rights.”
