The National Advisory Council is a body that provides advice to the INDH Council on all matters within its competence that require its pronouncement or their proper resolution.
The Advisory Council is made up of:
- 5 people appointed by the Council, who belong to a social organization linked to the promotion and defense of human rights and fundamental freedoms.
- 4 people appointed by the Council, who participate in academic organizations linked to the promotion and defense of human rights and fundamental freedoms.
- People who have obtained the National Prize for Human Rights, established in article 14 of Law 20,405.
An internal regulation, approved by two thirds of the Council, establishes its integration and determines the cases and the way in which said advice is provided. The current members were invited to be part of the Council in accordance with what was agreed by the INDH Council in its session No. 262.
