As the government of Mexico implements its National Human Rights Plan at the federal and state levels, it must address structural challenges to human rights and enhance its dialogue with civil society organizations.
The Mexican government’s National Human Rights Plan (NHRP) is the foundation of the country’s human rights policy agenda. The USAID-funded EnfoqueDH project supported the Mexican government’s efforts to address critical challenges to human rights. EnfoqueDH supported the creation of protections for victims of human rights violations and the prevention of such violations. One of the project’s primary goals was to facilitate the implementation of policies that prevent human rights violations into regulatory frameworks and legislation. Additionally, EnfoqueDH built the government’s capacity to engage in meaningful dialogue about human rights policies with civil society organizations and to improve its approach to meeting international human rights standards. EnfoqueDH advanced collaboration between vulnerable social groups and local stakeholders as well as federal and state government actors and civil society organizations to make a lasting contribution to the protection of human rights, the prevention of human rights violations, and inclusive human rights agendas in Mexico.
