UNAMA Human Rights Section gathers credible and accurate reports regarding the Human Rights situation in Afghanistan.

UNAMA continues to dialogue with the de facto authorities, advocating on reported violations and raising awareness in human rights standards.

Afghanistan as a state remains a party to a number of international human rights treaties. This and previous reports present recommendations which aim to ensure that the obligations set out under these treaties – and the obligations owed by the de facto authorities to the Afghan population in respect of the protection and promotion of human rights- are upheld.
