Peace, civil society, human rights

UNAMA is mandated by the UN Security Council to “continue cooperating with and strengthening the capacity of the Government of Afghanistan, the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission, and civil society in the protection and promotion of human rights.” The UN Security Council also underlined that the economic, social, political and development gains made in the last 19 years as well as respect for human rights, especially for women, children and minorities, must be protected and built upon.

UNAMA seeks to embed and integrate human rights into processes promoting peace and reconciliation, ensuring inclusivity, accountability and compatibility with justice and international human rights standards. UNAMA supports the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission in delivering on its human rights protection mandate as the national human rights body accredited at the Global Alliance of National Human Rights Institutions. UNAMA works with the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission and national actors in promoting sustainable policies in areas related to victim-centred justice, including on accountability, truth seeking, reparations, institutional reforms and prevention.

UNAMA supports human rights defenders and civil society actors in advocating for the promotion and protection of civic space in Afghanistan.
