Report your human rights and COVID-19 issues and concerns

Even in times of crisis, people have human rights that safeguard their dignity. Even in times of emergency, human rights place binding obligations upon the Government to abide by the commitments they have made. The Government has obligations to limit the spread of COVID-19, but restrictions must be necessary, proportionate and respectful of human dignity.

The Government has Te Tiriti o Waitangi and human rights obligations to protect people’s economic and social rights, as well as their civil and political rights.

This form provides a way for you to report any human rights issues or concerns. Please outline the issue, the location where it’s happening, and whether this issue is happening to an individual or as a systemic issue.

We will collect the information you provide and use it to support Human Rights Commission advocacy work for human rights. We will not publish your name or contact details. Read our detailed privacy statement here.
