FORUM-ASIA, as the Secretariat of the Asian NGO Network on National Human Rights Institutions (ANNI), is delighted to present the publication of the 2018 ANNI Report on the Performance and Establishment of the National Human Rights Institutions in Asia. We would like to express our sincere gratitude and appreciation for all the indefatigable work carried out and the dedication shown by all 36 member-organisations of ANNI. We would also like to extend our sincere gratitude to the NHRIs that have contributed to the publication.

Similarly to what we have been doing for more than ten years, the 2018 ANNI Report is based on country reports with analysis of the performance of each country’s national human rights institution, or the progress made towards the possible establishment of a national human rights institution, during 2017 and the first quarter of 2018. The country reports are structured according to ANNI Reporting Guidelines that were consulted on, discussed, and framed by the ANNI members at the 11th Regional Consultation of ANNI held in Kathmandu, Nepal in March 2018.

The 2018 ANNI Report analyses the performance and effectiveness of national human rights institutions across the Asia-Pacific region by employing the lens of the Paris Principles together with the General Observations of the GANHRI Sub-Committee on Accreditation (SCA) including, for instance, an examination of the mandates of the NHRIs, the pluralism of the national human rights Commissioners, and NHRIs’ engagement with civil society.
