In Human Rights Resolution 2005/74, the United Nations Commission
on Human Rights recognized the importance of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRis) in protecting human rights and called for further work to nurture their growth. In an effort to address critiques that it fell short of U.N. expectations for NHRis, in March 2014 Myanmar's government enacted the Myanmar National Human Rights Commission Law to reform the Myanmar
National Human Rights Commission (MNHRC) in accord with the Paris Principles.
