Human Rights Advisers in Rwanda

In 2007, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) deployed the Human Rights Adviser (HRA) in Rwanda to focus on, inter alia, the provision of technical assistance to Rwanda to comply with its reporting and follow-up commitments to treaty bodies.

Rwanda is one of the countries in which the One UN Concept is being piloted. This is an initiative that provides for the United Nations (UN) bodies and agencies to work together in order to avoid fragmentation, increase impact, effectiveness and coherency. The One UN programme has provided technical and financial support to Parliament, relevant Government ministries, the justice sector, human rights institutions and civil society in an effort to support their efforts and build their capacity to protect and promote human rights through a range of activities.
