Egypt’s national human rights institution before the Global Alliance of NHRIs

On 1st of June 2023, Alkarama submitted its report on the Egyptian National Council for Human Rights (NCHR) to the Sub-Committee on Accreditation (SCA) of the Global Alliance of National Human Rights Institutions (GANHRI), the body responsible for evaluating National Human Rights Institutions’ compliance with the Paris Principles.

Alkarama's report highlighted that while the concerns were raised with the SCA during its previous review in 2018 remain, the NCHR has since been effectively used as a public relations tool by the government to cover up its dismal human rights record.
