SAHRC 25 YEARS

The 2nd of October 2020 marks a milestone for the constitutional democracy and the promotion and protection of human rights in South Africa as the South Human Rights Commission (the SAHRC or the Commission) celebrates twenty five years of its existence.
The twenty fifth year of the Commission’s existence continues to evidence the relevance of the institution, established by the supreme law of the land, the Constitution, in contributing towards the establishment and deepening of a culture of human rights in the country. Chapter 9 of the Constitution establishes the SAHRC, as the national human rights institution (NHRI) in this country with the mandate to protect, promote and monitor the attainment of human rights, rights which are outlined in Chapter 2 of the Constitution, the Bill of Rights.
