After hard work by all sectors of the community and previous presidents of Taiwan, on Jan. 8, 2020, the “Organic Law of the Control Yuan National Human Rights Commission” was enacted and promulgated by the Presidential Order. The National Human Rights Commission, in accordance with the Paris Principles, was officially established on Aug. 1 of the same year, marking a new milestone in the promotion and protection of human rights in Taiwan.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the CY still participated in many international activities, such as attending the 32nd APOR online conference, signing cooperation agreement with Ibero-American Federation of Ombudsman (FIO) and publishing the Chinese version of “Research Handbook on the Ombudsman”.

The Annual Report includes 6 case summaries, which are categorized into public expenditures, upholding discipline and safeguarding human rights. In hopes of promoting exchanges and mutual understandings with IOI colleagues, the Annual Report, published in both English and Spanish, is available on the CY website.
