• UN support to the Human Rights Commissioner in Azerbaijan (+)

    This case from Azerbaijan highlights how the Ombudsman Institution’s close working relationship with the UN Country Team in Azerbaijan and other UN agencies like the Office of the High Commissioner, has contributed to the Institution’s outreach activities. At the same time, this cooperation has enabled the Ombudsman to organize high-level training seminars to educate decision makers and influential people in many regions of the country. The national institution has also worked closely with university legal clinics staffed by students. Doing so helps to ingrain human rights issues into the next generation of lawyers while also supporting a vital source of legal services and rights protection for vulnerable groups of society.
