Transforming Society

Securing Rights

Restoring Dignity


The Foundation of Human Rights along with the Department of Justice and Constitutional Development have launched an innovative online video series titled, “Keep It Constitutional”. The series helps you learn about the rights that you and everyone else in South Africa have, so that if anyone threatens these rights, you can do something about it.


The Commission identifies, discusses and integrates strategic priority areas in line with the Human Rights Matrix. The Commissioners also assigned specific provinces and United Nations treaty bodies amongst themselves. These strategic priority areas, treaty bodies and provinces are set out in below.
