Human Rights law in force in Belgium

How can organisations comply with human rights?

The state is the main party responsible for the respect, protection and fulfilment of human rights of all persons in its jurisdiction. Therefore, it must regulate human rights issues and enforce the law, including with regard to the activities of organisations. The state must also ensure that all actors comply with human rights obligations through oversight and control. As a result, an important duty of the state is to support organisations and persons in acquiring the necessary knowledge to implement human rights compliance and to enforce human rights law when it is not voluntarily respected.

Organisations can comply with their human rights obligations by using the mechanisms in this toolbox:


Human Rights Due Diligence and impact assessment

Operational Grievance Mechanisms

Self-assessment Compliance
