UN Human Rights in Liberia

The Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights was established in April 2018 following the signing of a six-year host country agreement with the Government of Liberia. The agreement allows the office to exercise a full human rights promotion and protection mandate. The OHCHR’s functions are defined by the agreement with the Government of Liberia to: exercise the mandate of the High Commissioner to protect and promote human rights; contribute to national efforts in promoting respect for, and observance of human rights; observe the human rights situation and inform authorities; provide capacity building to national institutions, civil society organisations (CSOs), and individuals regarding promotion and protection of human rights; and prepare reports and statements as and when determined by the High Commissioner. In line with OHCHR Liberia’s human rights protection and promotion mandate, the Office strengthened capacities of government, CSOs, private sector and academia through technical assistance, capacity building and trainings on thematic human rights issues and has conducted trial monitoring to detect and prevent any due process violations.
