Over the past 10 years, National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) across Europe have had to work harder and smarter to promote and protect human rights. For this, they have needed an equally strong network for solidarity, mutual learning, and common initiatives to address shared human rights challenges.
By maintaining a steadfast commitment to its values and building partnerships, the European Network of National Human Rights Institutions (ENNHRI) has impacted regional human rights developments. At the same time, it has shared its expertise to build and support new institutions and strengthen NHRIs across Europe.
The cumulative impact of this is clear. In 2023, NHRIs form an indispensable and acknowledged part of the European human rights architecture.
Below, experience the journey ENNHRI and NHRIs have undertaken to reach this point, and what is planned as we move into a new decade.
