FRA: New report on national human rights institutions published

3/9/2020
“National human rights institutions are guardians of human rights. But too often, they cannot deliver on their true potential,” says FRA Director Michael O’Flaherty. "Governments and Parliaments should free NHRIs from unnecessary constraints and grant them the power and resources they need to do their job properly.
