Description: Human rights reform and advocacy.
On 17 January, 2014, CHRI resourced a panel discussion on Bhutan's RTI Bill organised by QED, a prominent think tank based in Thimphu. MPs and representatives of government, civil society sector, media and academia attended the day-long discussion where the RTI Bill was examined threadbare and recommendations were made for improvement. Later CHRI had a 2-hour long focused discussion with the Chairperson and the Vice-Chairperson of the Parliamentary Legislative Committee on improving the Bill's provisions. CHRI also met with the Prime Minister, the Finance Minister and the Leader of the Opposition of Bhutan during this visit. With this intervention, CHRI has provided technical assistance to all governments and civil society organizations in the South Asian region for strengthening their RTI legislation.
