THE CHRC IN A NUTSHELL

Created by the law n°2019/014 from july 19 2019, the Cameroon Human Rights Commission (CHRC) is the Cameroonian institution in charge of the Promotion and the Protection of Human Rights, including also the Prevention of Torture.

Therefore, it can ask to any administration a study or a report on matters related to its mission and also instigate studies in the field of Human Rights to the benefit of administrations requesting them.

Except for contradictory terms within the law, all authorities have the obligation to provide to the Commission every data and information, alongside any documentation that it might request as part of their investigation process.


Our mission

The Commission's mission is Human Rights' promotion and protection and prevention in all detention facilities. As such, it may request a study or report from any administration on any issues within its remit and may undertake human rights studies for government authorities that request them.
Our Vision
To make the Cameroon Human Rights Commission the reference structure in the highly competitive human rights environment in Cameroon.
