The Network of African National Human Rights Institutions (NANHRI) is one of four regional groupings within the global network, the International Co-ordinating Committee of NHRIs (ICC). NANHRI promotes the establishment of national human rights institutions throughout Africa, and supports co-operation and training to strengthen and develop the monitoring, promotion, protection and advocacy work of African NHRIs.
