The Human Rights Commission is partnering with a number of public institutions and civil society organizations in promoting and protecting human rights in Zambia. Among these are:
The Judiciary, as the primary institution charged with the protection of human rights, enforces the National Bill of Rights which is entrenched in the Constitution.
The National Assembly, which consists of elected and nominated Members of Parliament, carries out a wide range of important public responsibilities that enhance democratic governance in Zambia. These responsibilities include making laws (Acts of Parliament), approving proposals for taxation and public expenditure, and keeping the work of the Government under scrutiny and review.
Zambia Police Service is charged with the responsibility to inter alia protect life and property. The Police also has a Victim Support Unit in almost all parts of the country which deals with violations of human rights, especially of women and children.
