Who is NIM

The United Nations has recommended that all states establish a national human rights institution (NHRI) vested with competence to promote and protect human rights. The Norwegian National Human Rights Institution (NIM) plays this role in Norway. NIM is an independent, public institution, established in 2015 by the Norwegian Parliament to promote and protect human rights in Norway.
