New guide: How can National Human Rights Institutions and National Equality Bodies engage with the European Committee of Social Rights

The European Social Charter has just published a new guide for National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) and National Equality Bodies NEBs). The guide aims to clarify how NHRIs and NEBs can engage with the European Committee of Social Rights under the two monitoring procedures of the European Social Charter: the reporting procedure and the collective complaints procedure.

The Guide represents the European Committee of Social Rights commitment to support the work of NHRIs and NEBs and the European Social Charter willingness to guide them through the monitoring procedures of the Charter and offer help with any arising problems or questions.

“To ensure that social rights are adequately protected in Europe, we need strong cooperation between the Council of Europe and European countries on one hand, and effective, pluralist and independent National Human Rights Institutions and National Equality Bodies on the other, underlines Karin Lukas, President of the European Committee of Social Rights in the Foreword.
