Advancing human rights

Human rights have long been at the centre of the Commonwealth's values and its practical interventions, and the Commonwealth Secretariat's work in the field has achieved growing prominence in recent years. The importance attached to human rights specifically is reflected in the enhanced autonomy of the Human Rights Unit since its reconstitution in January 2002.
