How National Human Rights Institutions can engage with the European Committee of Social Rights 

National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) can engage with and support the work of the European Committee of Social Rights (ECSR) in various ways. They are particularly valuable in helping monitor compliance with the European Social Charter. With the Charter’s latest reporting cycle underway, NHRIs are invited to provide their input.  

To encourage and guide NHRI (and equality body) contributions, ENNHRI, Equinet and the Council of Europe’s European Social Charter Department are organising an information session on Wednesday 2 February 2022, 11:30-13:30 CEST

By joining, NHRIs will find out about:  

  • How the reporting procedure works,  
  • The questionnaire on labour rights submitted to States Parties for the reporting cycle 2022;  
  • Opportunities to submit additional information to the ECSR on labour rights;  
  • Experiences of NHRIs on collecting, presenting and submitting additional information to the ECSR. 

See the full event concept and agenda here. Interested NHRIs can sign up here. Registration is only open to NHRI (and equality body) representatives.  

Find out more about the submissions the ESCR is seeking under this year’s reporting cycle.
