“The SCA emphasizes that regular and constructive engagement of all relevant stakeholders is essential for NHRIs to effectively fulfil their mandates, and contributes to the accessibility of the institution for all, including those who are geographically, politically or socially remote. The SCA further notes that broad engagement with all stakeholders improves the effectiveness of an NHRI in implementing its mandate to promote and protect human rights by providing a better understanding of: the breadth of human rights issues across the state; the impact of such issues based on social, cultural, geographic and other factors; gaps; priorities; and implementation strategies.”
