“The CNCDH reports that it cooperates with other national human rights bodies including the Défenseur des droits, who is an ex-officio member of the institution. It encourages the CNCDH to continue to strengthen its cooperation with the Défenseur des droits and with other national entities with responsibility for the promotion and protection of human rights.

The SCA wishes to highlight that regular and constructive engagement with all relevant stakeholders is essential for NHRIs to effectively fulfil their mandates. NHRIs should develop, formalize and maintain working relationships, as appropriate, with other domestic institutions established for the promotion and protection of human rights, including sub-national statutory human rights institutions, thematic institutions, as well as civil society and non-governmental organizations.”
