Find an NHRI

National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) have a critical role to play in implementing and monitoring the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities. NHRIs conduct a range of activities to promote and protect the human rights of persons with disabilities. These can include awareness-raising programs, human rights training, review of existing legislation, proposing new legislation, promoting the rule of law, and investigating individual and group complaints of human rights violations.
