Good practices

Good practices for protecting and promoting human rights highlight positive developments in human rights work

In promoting respect for human rights in member states, one of the Commissioner’s aims is to encourage good practices for the protection of human rights.

Descriptions of good practice by country

Examples of such practices developed in member states raise awareness of tested solutions to human rights problems and can also serve as a source of inspiration to other countries.

With this aim in mind, the Commissioner has invited member states to contribute a good practice example from their country. Each country has made its own choice for the example and its theme.

The descriptions of good practice provide a concise description of the practice and information on the human rights issues at stake, evaluations carried out as well as conclusions for inspiring similar initiatives elsewhere. Contact details for further information are also given.

The initiative is part of the on-going dialogue between the Commissioner and the national authorities. More examples will be made available progressively.
