“National human rights institutions are complementary mechanisms designed to ensure the full protection of the rights of all citizens. They offer what the legal system or other administrative procedures cannot offer. In particular, their focus on human rights enables them to accumulate and use knowledge and experience and ensure that human rights issues are included in all significant areas of the society,”- said Akmyrat Danatarov, Programme Analyst for Governance, Economic Diversification, and Inclusive Growth, UNDP in Turkmenistan.
The workshop was dedicated to International Human Rights Day, annually celebrated by the international community on December 10th.
