Protection of fundamental rights in Central Asia: Update on developments in April-June 2014

9360489A new monitoring report, which has been prepared in the framework of a joint project implemented by three Central Asian NGOs and one Brussels-based NGO, provides an overview of developments affecting the protection of fundamental rights in Kazakhstan, Tajikistan and Turkmenistan in April-June 2014. The report covers major developments and individual cases in the areas of freedom of expression, freedom of assembly and association, equality before the law and non-discrimination, as well as access to justice of vulnerable groups.

The report is based on monitoring conducted by Kazakhstan International Bureau for Human Rights and Rule of Law, Nota Bene (Tajikistan) and Turkmen Initiative for Human Rights (based in exile in Austria) in their respective countries, employing methods such as on-the-ground monitoring (including trial monitoring where possible); direct contacts with individuals affected by particular developments and other sources of information; monitoring of legal developments and actions of authorities; and media and social media monitoring. International Partnership for Human Rights has assisted with compiling and editing the report.

The report is available here.
