The Asylum & Migration Working Group was established in 2008 by an informal network of lawyers working in different NHRIs. Since then, the Working Group has become more structured and now comprises 25 NHRIs from wider Europe. The current chair of the Working Group is Maja Kevic of the Croatian NHRI.
Working Group members exchange knowledge and experience in order to strengthen regional and international cooperation in the field of asylum and migration and facilitate engagement with regional mechanisms on asylum and migration issues.
The Business and Human Rights Working Group looks at at the links between human rights and business. Within the group, members share their knowledge and expertise to develop engagement with regional mechanisms on the human rights impact of corporate activities. They also liaise with the GANHRI Working Group on Business and Human Rights.
