Human Rights and Equality Institution of Turkey
Independence and effectiveness of the NHRI
The Human Rights and Equality Institution of Turkey is a non-accredited, associate member of ENNHRI. As such, the institution has committed taking proactive steps towards applying for accreditation and complying with the UN Paris Principles.
In 2019, a capacity assessment of the institution took place, led by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP) and in cooperation with OHCHR and ENNHRI. The main purpose of the capacity assessment was to identify the challenges and institutional needs of the institution in developing their capacities and to develop strategies for ensuring compliance with the UN Paris Principles.
The Institution has demonstrated interest in applying for accreditation and ENNHRI will continue to support it in its efforts to enhance compliance with the UN Paris Principles.
