These focus areas are informed by South Africa’s human rights obligations at the international, regional and domestic level.  Commissioner Adv.

In championing these two respective strategic focus areas, Commissioner Ameermia is assisted by expert advisory committees which are created in terms of section 11 of the South African Human Rights Commission Act, No 40 of 2013.
