Briefing Paper 54: Pakistan’s National Commission for Human Rights

The establishment of the National Commission for Human Rights (NCHR) is a key step to protect and promote the fundamental rights enshrined in Pakistan’s Constitution, thereby helping to meet Pakistan’s international obligations, as well as the commitments made under the European Union’s Generalised Scheme of Preferences (GSP+) mechanism, which facilitates Pakistani exports to the EU. The NCHR is empowered to investigate human rights violations, spread human rights literacy, publish research on international law, raise awareness about human rights protections, make recommendations for the implementation of treaty obligations, and develop a national plan for the promotion and protection of human rights.
