“The HREIT reports that it prepares reports and raises awareness about international human rights instruments. However, the HREIT is not explicitly mandated to encourage ratification of, and accession to, regional and international human rights instruments. The SCA notes that encouraging ratification of, or accession to international human rights instruments, and the effective implementation of international human rights instruments to which the State is a party, is a key function of an NHRI. The SCA considers it important that these duties form an integral part of the enabling legislation of an NHRI. The SCA recommends that the HREIT advocates for appropriate amendments to its enabling legislation to include an explicit mandate to encourage ratification of and accession to international human rights instruments.”
