Project Summary, Objectives and Results
Over the last decade, the Government of Uzbekistan has progressively established institutional structures for the promotion and protection of human rights, such as the National Human Rights Centre and the authorized Person for Human Rights (the Ombudsman). Strong efforts were required for their legal base, institutional establishment, identification, and bringing up new national talent to fill the human resource gap. Further development is needed to enhance legislation regulating their activities, improve procedural mechanisms, enhance knowledge and expertise of staff, improve technical and information resources, increase public awareness on rights and possibilities to properly utilize services of these institutions.
The main objective of the project is to strengthen capacities of the national human rights institutions and relevant bodies to effectively fulfil their mandates for promotion and protection of human rights in Uzbekistan.
The project focuses primarily on activities relating to human rights matters that form part of the mandate and day-to-day work of operational national human rights institutions, which would consequently improve the promotion and protection of human rights.
