Renshaw, Catherine. (2012). National human rights institutions and civil society organizations: New dynamics of engagement at domestic, regional, and international levels. Global Governance. 18(3), pp. 299 - 316.
This article examines the dynamics of engagement between national human rights institutions (NHRIs) and civil society organizations (CSOs) in the Asia Pacific region. It explores the role of CSOs in the establishment of NHRIs and argues that this history is essential to understanding the experience of NHRIs within different states. Second, it explores the evolution and impact of networks of NHRIs and CSOs in a region that currently lacks a supranational mechanism for promoting and protecting human rights. Finally, it considers the potential for CSOs to utilize the evolving processes of the International Coordinating Committee of Institutions for the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights (ICC) to strengthen the independence and effectiveness of NHRIs. KEYWOKDS: NHRIS, CSOS, ICC, Asia Pacific region.
