Chapter Summary

This chapter looks briefly at the history and elements of the concept of a national protection system before proceeding to examine its constitutional, legislative, judicial, institutional, educational and monitoring aspects. It then presents the ideas for bringing the concept more to the fore in the future of international cooperation for the universal realisation of human rights. The concept of the national protection system is, strategically, one of the most important for future human rights strategies. It is a key concept towards preventive human rights strategies, another approach that should be emphasised in future human rights work. Based on the work of international human rights treaty bodies, special procedures and the empirical work of UN institutions like the United Nations Development Programme and Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, more efforts should be deployed on the strengthening of national protection systems in the future.

Keywords: constitutional dimension; institutional dimension; judicial dimension; legislative dimension; monitoring dimension; national protection systems
