Also, the Commission on human rights under the President of the Republic of Kazakhstan, which is a consultative and advisory body, effectively functions alongside with the Office of the Ombudsman. It aims towards forming a policy of the Head of State in the sphere of human rights and assists in implementation of his constitutional powers as a guarantor of protection of the rights of citizens.

On the whole, naturally complementing each other in the legal field of Kazakhstan, the Commission and the Ombudsman make a great contribution to the sphere of protection of human rights.

Meanwhile, state protection of human rights does not exclude independent actions of each person on their protection by all means not prohibited by the Law, including the possibility to turn to the international agencies such as the UN Council on Human Rights, the UN Committee against Torture, the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination, the UN Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women.

Great importance in the country is also attached to training of officials to human rights. Standards of public service in Kazakhstan are based on the principles of human rights protection. Ideas of human rights enshrined in human rights conventions, were incorporated not only in the texts of laws, but also in subordinate regulatory legislation and instructions.
