“The SCA acknowledges that the PDHJ engages with a broad range of civil society organisations including through the Advisory Council. It encourages the PDHJ to continue to maintain systematic and formalised working relationships and cooperation with civil society organisations.

Regular and constructive engagement with all relevant stakeholders is essential for NHRIs to effectively fulfil their mandates, and contributes to the accessibility of the Institution for all citizens, including those who are geographically, politically or socially remote.”
