Dunja Mijatović, Commissioner for Human Rights

Addressing the Parliamentary Assembly’s debate on “Ending coercion in mental health: the need for a human rights-based approach”, the Commissioner for Human Rights Dunja Mijatović delivered the following statement today: 

"It is a great pleasure to address the Parliamentary Assembly on a subject that lies very close to my heart.

I would like to start by saluting the great work accomplished by the Rapporteur for the report in front of you today. I strongly agree with her findings and conclusions, as well as the contents of the draft resolution and recommendation.

My experience as your Human Rights Commissioner has only confirmed these findings and the vicious circles caused by a coercion-based mental health approach."
