Slovak government proposes transformation of National Centre for Human Rights

The Slovak National Centre for Human Rights (SNSĽP) should be transformed as it cannot continue to operate as it is currently structured, states an analysis reviewed and approved by the Slovak cabinet on June 1, the TASR newswire reported. The analysis states that SNSĽP is not able to effectively carry out all of its tasks in the sphere of human rights protection and it is not well-equipped to handle equal opportunities issues. The analysis suggests that the best solution would be to transform SNSĽP into an institution solely focusing on equal opportunities while its agenda on human rights protection should be transferred to Slovakia’s Ombudsman's Office.

SNSĽP was established in 1994 and ten years later its agenda was extended to include equal opportunities and protection against discrimination.
