New Delhi, India


In 1993 CHRI was established in New Delhi. The initial plan was to move the CHRI secretariat every five years in order to deepen expertise on all regions of the Commonwealth. Once the logistical difficulties of frequent moves became clear, the plan was quickly abandoned and CHRI was able to establish its roots as an international organisation in the global South. This was the area that needed most focus. Although this move was considered radical at the time, it has proved a successful one. Our position in the global South has allowed us access to, as well as primary contact with, local partners.

Today, CHRI is a well-established and well-known organisation. From the New Delhi office, we coordinate activities with the Accra and London offices as we advocate for and promote awareness of human rights violations in all Commonwealth countries. Our primary mandate is to promote awareness of and adherence to the Harare Principles, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, and other internationally recognised human rights instruments and declarations made by the Commonwealth Heads of Government, as well as domestic instruments supporting human rights in the Commonwealth. This mandate permits us to make strategic interventions even as we retain a steady focus specifically on Access to Information and Access to Justice.
