About WGHR

The Working Group on Human Rights in India and the UN (WGHR) was established in January 2009 by a group of civil society organisations and independent experts working in the field of human rights in India. The basis of WGHR's work is national and international human rights law. WGHR works towards the realisation of all civil, cultural, economic, political and social human rights in the country and towards holding the Indian government accountable to its national and international human rights obligations. At the national level, WGHR seeks to engage with relevant human rights, government, parliamentary, judicial and academic institutions. At the international level, WGHR seeks to effectively work with United Nations (UN) human rights instruments and mechanisms.
