In courts, in the media, and in various public and legislative for a, IHRC is a strong advocate for laws and policies that promote and defend human rights. An important part of IHRC’s work involves advocacy against legislation and policies that undermine human rights. This includes working to increase public awareness through research and dissemination of accurate information on violations and anti-poor policies.

In crucial areas where adequate legislation is lacking or requires amendment, IHRC has been at the forefront of efforts to formulate laws and policies – such as against child sexual abuse, against communal crimes, and for the right to food and work. IHRC Counseling efforts encourage debates and discussions at the local, state, and national levels.
