Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms that belong to every person in the world, from birth until death.
The Human Rights protection of india (HRPOI) was established as an arm’s length agency of government in 1961 to prevent discrimination and to promote and advance human rights in HRPOI.
The Human Rights protection of india has a broad statutory mandate to promote, protect and advance respect for human rights, and to identify and promote the elimination of discriminatory practices.
The Human Rights protection of india works in many different ways to fulfill this mandate, including through education, policy development, public inquiries and litigation.
Who we are: an overview We represent the world’s commitment to the promotion and protection of the full range of human rights and freedoms set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Promote and protect all human rights:
We speak out objectively in the face of human rights violations and help elaborate the standards that are used to evaluate human rights progress worldwide.
Help empower people:
Our research, education, and advocacy activities, contributes to the increased awareness and engagement by the international community and the public on human rights issues. This means thousands of people in all regions of the world are empowered to claim their rights.
Through our field presences, we help prevent abuses and contribute to defusing situations that could lead to conflict. Our monitoring and analysis feeds sensitive decision-making and development programming.
We also provide capacity-building and legal advice to thousands, supporting the development and judicious enactment of laws and policies the world around.
Inject a human rights perspective into all Human Rights programmes: We mainstream human rights into all Human Rights programmes to ensure that peace and security, development, and human rights – the three pillars of the UN – are interlinked and mutually reinforced.
