Assessing the Effectiveness of National Human Rights Institutions


(Report Assessing the Effectiveness of National Human Rights Institutions Co-published by the Geneva-based International Council on Human Rights Policy (ICHRP) and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, this report reviews the standards for assessing the effectiveness of national human rights institutions (NHRIs). In 2000, the ICHRP published a report entitled Performance and Legitimacy: National Human Rights Institutions, which examined the elements of successful institutions. The current report returns to the subject matter of Performance and Legitimacy, and reviews in more depth the characteristics of effective NHRIs. It then suggests how NHRIs might use quantitative, qualitative and participatory indicators to measure the impact of their activities and assess progress. This report is intended to be a practical tool for NHRIs to assess their own effectiveness in order to plan their activities and programs more efficiently.)
