Abstract:

This handbook offers a survey of trends, examples, questions for consideration and recommendations to guide national human rights institutions in strengthening their capacity and practical work on women’s rights and gender equality.

In 2011, the OSCE Office for Democratic Institutions and Human Rights (ODIHR) conducted a survey to document how national human rights institutions (NHRIs) in the OSCE region address women’s rights and gender equality.

This Handbook presents the results of the survey, based on responses received from 38 NHRIs in OSCE participating States. It also provides analysis and recommendations for action.
