Oficina Regional para América del Sur


Background

The OHCHR Regional Office for South America was established in Santiago, following the signature of an agreement between the OHCHR and the Government of Chile on 23 September 2009. This Office complies with the mandate and general competences assigned to the OHCHR by the General Assembly in its resolution 48/141 of 20 December 1993.

The Regional Office for South America covers Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Peru, Uruguay and Venezuela. It coordinates its activities and actions with Headquarters and other field presences.

The Regional Office for South America works with governments, parliaments, tribunals, national human rights institutions, civil society, regional and international organisations and the United Nations to develop and strengthen their capacities, so as to improve the promotion and protection of human rights, according to international norms.

The thematic priorities of the Regional Office for South America are: combating impunity and strengthening accountability and the rule of law; integrating human rights in development and in the economic sphere; enhancing equality and countering discrimination; early warning and protection of human rights in situations of conflict, violence and insecurity; strengthening the effectiveness of international human rights mechanisms and the progressive development on international human rights law; and widening democratic space.
