NHRIs under threat

In the course of their work, NHRIs could come under threat in a variety of manners, including: reduction in formal independence; political pressure; reduction in mandate; reduction and/or the removal of funding, arrest or attacks of NHRI representatives.

ENNHRI’s has released guidelines that state the principles that drive ENNHRI’s support for NHRIs under threat. The document also provides an overview of the options for support available and clarifies the procedures that are followed in such cases.
