National Advocacy

In promoting positive change to the human rights situation in Commonwealth countries, CHRI targets the association of which they are members (the Commonwealth, United Nations and regional bodies). In addition, though, it is crucial that we engage directly with those governments and other in-country stakeholders. Please visit the programme pages of the website for details of this engagement related to CHRI's focus areas of Access to Information and Access to Justice. Visit the country profiles page for profiles of all 53 Commonwealth members, as well as details of CHRI's broader human rights advocacy in each country.

In order to support civil society in member countries, CHRI also coordinates the Commonwealth Human Rights Network. On invitation from civil society in a member country, CHRI may also send a fact finding mission to monitor specific human rights situation and suggest solutions. To date, there have been four such missions.
