Nordiske Komiteen for Menneskerettigheter, avd. Norge

The Nordic Committee for Human Rights (NCHR) is an international, non-governmental organisation, free from politics and religion. It aims to:

* Increase the rights and freedoms of private individuals and their families.

* Strengthen respect for basic human rights and fundamental freedoms in the Nordic countries, based upon:

o The UN Declaration of Human Rights;

o The European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms;

o The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child.

* Submit yearly reports of suspected violations of families' rights to the UN organ for Human Rights, to the European Commission for Human Rights and to the UN Child Committee.

* Act resolutely to ensure that civil servants who are found guilty of abuse of power or of violating their fellow citizen's private and family life be brought to justice or before disciplinary bodies.

* To create public opinion in order to bring about changes in the present policies whereby residents in the Nordic countries suffer unnecessary interference in their private and family life.
