The Asian NGO Network on National Human Rights Institutions (ANNI) launched the ANNI Report 2020 on the Performance of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs), that critically assesses the performance of NHRIs against the Paris Principles in 2020.

The Paris Principles are the minimum international standards for ensuring independent, effective, and credible NHRIs for the promotion and protection of human rights.

The report was led by local civil society organisations and covers 11 Asian countries ‒ Bangladesh, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, South Korea, Sri Lanka, Taiwan and Thailand.

The ANNI report reveals that in 2020, most NHRIs were unable to perform their mandates effectively. Their independence has been compromised due to repressive laws, and governments have often excluded NHRIs when developing COVID-19 responses.
