The Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI) is an independent, non-partisan, international non-governmental organisation, mandated to ensure the practical realisation of human rights in the countries of the Commonwealth. In 1987, several Commonwealth professional associations founded CHRI. TheybelievedthatwhiletheCommonwealthprovidedmembercountriesasharedsetofvaluesandlegalprinciplesfrom which to work and provided a forum within which to promote human rights, there was little focus on theissuesofhumanrightswithintheCommonwealth.TheobjectivesofCHRIaretopromoteawarenessofandadherencetotheCommonwealthHararePrinciples,theUniversalDeclarationofHumanRightsandotherinternationallyrecognisedhumanrightsinstruments,aswellasdomesticinstrumentssupportinghumanrightsinCommonwealthmemberstates.Through its reports and periodic investigations, CHRI continually draws attention to progress and setbacks tohuman rights in Commonwealth countries. In advocating for approaches and measures to prevent humanrights abuses, CHRI addresses the Commonwealth Secretariat, member governments and civil societyassociations. Through its public education programmes,policy dialogues, comparative research, advocacyandnetworking,CHRI'sapproachthroughoutistoactasacatalystarounditspriorityissues.The nature of CHRI's sponsoring organisations* allows for a national presence and an international network.Theseprofessionalscanalsosteerpublicpolicybyincorporatinghumanrightsnormsintotheirownworkandact as a conduit to disseminate human rights information, standards and practices.
