On 5 March 2007, the National Assembly and the Senate adopted Law No. 2007-292 relating to the French National Consultative Commission for Human Rights.
The new Law replaces Decree No. 84-72 of 30 January 1984 (as amended) and confirms the Commission’s mandate as a consultative body to the Government in matters relating to human rights, international humanitarian law and humanitarian action. The Law provides that the Commission shall assist the Prime Minister and concerned Ministries by providing advisory opinions and recommendations and shall be composed of representatives of international and non-governmental organisations specializing in the field of human rights and humanitarian law, national experts, members of Parliament and other relevant State bodies, such as the Economic and Social Council.
The modalities of operation of the Commission under the new Law were subsequently outlined in Decree No. 2007-1137 relating to the Composition and Operation of the National Consultative Commission for Human Rights, adopted by the Prime Minister on 26 July 2007.
