Human Rights Institution - Recommendations to Switzerland
Several international bodies have recommended to Switzerland to establish a national human rights institution in accordance with the Paris Principles.
Situation in Switzerland
Switzerland established a service centre of four universities (the Swiss Centre of Expertise in Human Rights) as a pilot project lasting until end of 2015.
Need for action
The Swiss Centre of Expertise in Human Rights should be converted as soon as possible into an independent human rights institution in accordance with the Paris Principles.
