Enhancing the capacity of national actors in promoting and effectively protecting human rights


The overall objective of the Action is to strengthen the role of the civil society and lawyers’ community members to promote and effectively protect human rights under the United Nations human rights system.

The Action has three specific objectives: (1) building the capacity of national CSOs and lawyers’ community members in the international advocacy to promote and protect human rights by use of the UN Human Rights system; (2) promoting the role and increasing the number of national actors in making substantive submissions to the UN Treaty Bodies; and (3) promoting and increasing the use of national human rights protection systems for national actors, specifically for vulnerable groups.
