The KNCHR is the principal organ in ensuring State compliance with its international and regional human rights obligations. Towards this end, KNCHR works in partnership with the Ministry of Justice, National Cohesion and Constitutional Affairs (MOJNCCA) towards ensuring timely reporting and in the dissemination of the concluding remarks and observations by the various committee bodies. Moreover, the KNCHR works to build the capacity of Kenyan civil society to conduct their own monitoring and prepare shadow reports; and as an accredited National Human Rights Institution, the KNCHR, prepares and submits alternative reports to guide the work of the treaty body committees.
