South Asia Programme

FORUM-ASIA’s South Asia Programme supports the work of FORUM-ASIA’s member organisations at the national level. Additionally, the regional strategies enhance inter-programme synergy, cooperation, and coordination within the Secretariat for effective advocacy, campaigning, and networking.

FORUM-ASIA’s advocacy work on National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) is conducted by the NHRIs Advocacy Programme. The programme’s main objective is to ensure that NHRIs are able to function in an enabling environment that is conducive for the actualisation of their mandate, and to advocate for the establishment of NHRIs in countries where such institutions do not exist yet that are in full compliance with the Paris Principles.
