About National Commission For Human Rights (CNDP-NCHR)

The origins of the National Commission for Human Rights date back to the Arusha Peace Agreement of August 1993 between the Government of Rwanda of that time and the Rwanda Patriotic Front, in its Protocol on the Rule of Law. The creation of a National Human Rights Commission was a prerogative to the establishment of the Rule of Law due to the fact that Rwanda has in the past experienced prolonged periods of regimes that massively violated human rights and had a culture of impunity that culminated in the 1994 genocide.

The National Commission for Human Rights is provided for by the Constitution of the Republic of Rwanda of 4th June 2003 as amended to date. Its Article 177 states: “The National Commission on Human Rights is an independent national Commission especially in charge of the promotion and protection of human rights… A Law shall determine responsibilities, organization, and functioning of this Commission”.

The National Human Rights Commission of Rwanda has been created by the Law n° 04/99 of 12th March 1999 modified and complemented by the Law n° 35/2002 of 31st December 2002. This Law was replaced by the Law n° 30/2007 of 6th July 2007 determining the organization and functioning of the National Commission for Human Rights based on the Constitution of the Republic of Rwanda of 4th June 2003 as amended to date. Recently, so as to comply with the Paris Principles, the Law n° 30/2007 of 6th July 2007 has been replaced by Law n° 19/2013 of 25/03/2013 determining mission, organization and functioning of the National Commission for Human Rights.
