Why Motu?

Since the nature of documenting governments’ successes and failures in promoting human rights and potential is inherently sensitive, credible measures of human rights need to be constructed independently of government and with a very high degree of transparency.

As a highly respected independent charitable trust with good international connections, Motu is well-placed to co-host this work. In addition, New Zealand is highly respected on the world stage for our human rights record and is an ideal country in which to base independent and transparent reporting.
