Alongside the handbook, a collection of case studies outlining the experiences of NHRIs in selected Member States has been published in a separate Annex. It includes concrete examples of different paths EU Member States have taken when seeking to establish an NHRI or obtain an accreditation status for it.

The handbook also references Equinet’s perspective on Equality Bodies and National Human Rights Institutions - Making the Link to Maximise Impact, which seeks to establish principles and proposals to ensure that the links developed between equality bodies and national human rights institutions contributes to maximising the impact of these bodies.
