ZHRC holds workshop to develop IEC Materials to enhance its public protector mandate

On 21 May 2024, the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission (ZHRC) workshop on the development of Information, Education and Communication (IEC) Materials for the ZHRC’s administrative justice function kicked off in Gweru, Midlands Province. The development of IEC materials is a foundational step as ZHRC gears up its efforts towards raising awareness and educating the public, as well as government ministries, departments, and agencies about its constitutional public protector mandate. The IEC materials are also key to disseminate information about the role ZHRC plays in promoting the right to administrative justice as part of its initiative to promote good governance in the conduct of state affairs, in line with Zimbabwe’s national development strategies such as the National Development Strategy 1. ZHRC recognises that IEC materials are indispensable components of societal developmentas they create awareness, foster participation, and catalyse sustainable change within communities.

By the end of the three days’ workshop, it is expected that ZHRC will have developed comprehensive IEC materials for administrative justice, which will increase its resources for its awareness, outreaches, and public education activities. This activity isfunded by the European Commission within the broader framework of the “Support to the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission” Action being implemented by the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian Law in cooperation with the Zimbabwe Human Rights Commission.
