[Report] 2023 ANNI Report on the Performance of NHRIs in Asia
1 November 2023 11:00 am

The ANNI Report 2023 is a biennial report on the performance and establishment of national human rights institutions (NHRIs) in Asia. ANNI published its first report in 2007 and it continued to be published as an annual report till 2019, barring a few years in between. Since 2021, the report has been following a biennial format.

The current report covers the performance assessment of thirteen NHRIs in Asia – established, or to-be established – from 1 January 2021 to 31 December 2022. The ANNI members in the specific countries covered primarily determined the selection of NHRIs for this report. This year’s report consists of country chapters from Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Mongolia, Myanmar, Nepal, Pakistan, the Philippines, South Korea, Sri Lanka, and Taiwan.

The civil society organisations (CSOs) who authored the chapters have been engaged with NHRI advocacy in their respective countries for several years and bring a reliable perspective of their respective NHRI’s performance and its contribution to protecting and promoting human rights. The report also brings forth some pressing human rights issues and challenges in Asia, as the performance of the NHRIs is assessed against – or/and in response to – the prevailing human rights issues.
