CHRI is an independent, non-partisan, international non-governmental organization working for the practical realisation of human rights for the people of the Commonwealth. We believe that the promotion and protection of human rights is the responsibility of governments but that the active informed participation of civil society is also vital to ensuring rule of law and the realisation of human rights.
CHRI has offices in London, Ghana, and New Delhi. Our work is based on strong research, and dissemination of information to both civil society and governments. Policy level dialogue, capacity building of stakeholders, and broad public education are standard activities

This work follows on from our major Commonwealth wide report on SDG8.7, launched at the 2018 Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting. A copy of the report can be downloaded here.
