Capacity Development of the Provedoria for Human Rights and Justice Project Fact Sheet

The PDHJ is Timor-Leste’s national human rights institution. It can review complaints, conduct investigations and forward recommendations regarding illegal or unjust conduct to the relevant state institutions. The PDHJ has a two-fold mandate in the areas of human rights and good governance. 

UNDP is building upon the existing human rights knowledge and skills of PDHJ staff, with a focus on broadening that knowledge and developing both analysis and the application of that knowledge. Investigation, monitoring and education skills are being consolidated along with the report writing, training material development and advocacy skills.
