National systems for monitoring discrimination: building on international experience

27 Dec 2013

The main objective of this study is to examine existing monitoring systems for discrimination in general, and gender discrimination in particular, in order to compile examples of good practices and lessons learned in a range of countries. The goal is to provide Office of the Parliament Commissioner for Human Rights (PCHR) with an array of cases from which to draw models and lessons for the purpose of clarifying and strengthening its own role within Ukraine’s anti-discrimination system. Thus the main focus is on the experiences in the field of monitoring and reporting of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs), the sister organizations of the PCHR.
