NGOs Concerned About Botswana’s NHRI

Botswana NGOs concerned that their government and the UN are engaged in processes concerning the establishment of a NHRI without the strategic engagement of civil society organisations

Botswana non-governmental organisations (NGOs) are concerned that their government and the United Nations (UN) are engaged in processes concerning the establishment of a National Human Rights Institution (NHRI) without the strategic engagement of civil society organisations.

Between 2015 and 2016 the NHRI Benchmarking Missions for delegations of the Botswana government and the UN in Botswana, were undertaken to benchmark human rights institutions in Ghana, Namibia and Tanzania.

NGOs work closely with the communities and should, therefore, play a role in the preparatory processes for the creation of the NHRI - a body responsible for monitoring the state of human rights in the country.
