Capacity Building for the House of Representatives’ Committee on Human Rights

Promoting Democratic and Good Governance

The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in partnership with National Institute for Legislative and Democratic Studies (NILDS) are organizing a 2-day capacity building workshop for all the Members of the Committee on Human Rights.


​​​​​The increasing trend of human rights abuses and violations which is as old as the modern Nigeria has been giving many Nigerians as well as international observers concern as these abuses and violations undermine the rule of law, peaceful co-existence of citizens and economic development of the nation. In order to strengthen the House Committee on Human Rights, stakeholders from the human rights sector will be invited together with the members of the committee to discuss and offer their expert views, opinions and recommendations on ways the legislature can address the situation. Amongst topics to be presented are: A Review of Human Rights Abuses; Referrals and Petitions on Human Rights Issues – An Investigation; Reactivation of the National Action Plan on Human Rights; Advocacy for the Domestication of Violence Against Persons Prohibition Act and the Child’s Right Act in all States; Regional Collaboration for the Protection of Human Rights – The Role of Human Rights Committees in the West-African Sub-Region. The seminar is part of Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung’s support to democracy, rule of law and good governance in Nigeria.
