Afghanistan 2011-2014 and beyond : from support operations to sustainable peace : joint report by Luis Peral( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a general sense of urgency among experts regarding the situation in Afghanistan. The period of transition that is currently underway is seen as a last opportunity to create the necessary conditions for transforming international support in a way that reinforces a viable democratic state. The key lies in transforming what is basically a foreign military operation into a peacebuilding operation led by the Afghan government and the UN backed by international support, including military support if necessary, but always subordinate to civilian authorities. Thus, as the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) scales down, the EU and the US must work closely and intensively together, starting with supporting a strengthening of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA)

Arbitrary detention in Afghanistan : a call for action( )

3 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout Afghanistan, Afghans are arbitrarily detained by police, prosecutors, judges, and detention center officials with alarming regularity. It is systemic and occurs in a variety of forms. Arbitrary detention violates the Constitution of Afghanistan, and the international human rights standards to which Afghanistan has committed. In particular, it violates the right of all Afghans to liberty and to due process of law and erodes their dignity. Another consequence of arbitrary detention is overcrowding in Afghanistan's detention centers. Also, arbitrary detention often places detainees' families under unnecessary socio-economic hardship because income and social standing is lost. Widespread arbitrary detention erodes public confidence in the judicial system and in the government as well. To reverse this pattern, the Government of Afghanistan (GoA) committed to develop and implement corrective measures both in the Afghanistan Compact and the Afghanistan National Development Strategy (ANDS), as well as in the National Justice Progamme. In order to assist the GoA in its efforts, the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), with the cooperation of the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC), monitored detainees in Ministry of Interior (MoI) [police] and Ministry of Justice (MoJ) detention facilities throughout Afghanistan from November 2006-July 2008. This report draws upon this field monitoring to discuss the patterns and causes of arbitrary detention and to make recommendations on measures to effectively combat it. This report does not cover conflict-related detentions, including those by the National Directorate for Security (NDS) or international military forces (IMF). First, monitoring found that Afghans are often detained without a legal basis, including for so-called 'moral crimes', breaches of contractual obligations, for family disputes, or to pressure a relative or associate into confession. Second, there are indications that Afghans have been detained in order to deny them fundamental rights, particularly that of freedom of expression and many of the fundamental rights of women. Third, Afghans are detained without enjoying essential procedural protections, rendering many detentions arbitrary

Silence is violence : end the abuse of women in Afghanistan( )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The report seeks to put back on the agenda some of the issues pertaining to the enjoyment of all human rights by all Afghan women that are being increasingly ignored. The problems identified in this report require further discussion and public debate, with a view to informing appropriate legal, policy and awareness-raising measures. In this report, UNAMA Human Rights has focused on the following critical issues: (a) violence that inhibits the participation of women in public life; and (b) sexual violence in the context of rape. These issues are but two manifestations of the violence that confront Afghans. They are reviewed in the context of the prevailing socio-political culture whereby the rights of women are bartered to advance vested interests or issue-specific agendas. This report also examines how conservative political and religious forces play a role in restricting women's rights. The controversy surrounding the Shi'a personal status law exemplifies both problems. The current reality is that the lives of a large number of Afghan women are seriously compromised by violence. Women are denied their most fundamental human rights and risk further violence in the course of seeking justice for crimes perpetrated against them. Despite the hopes expressed nearly eight years ago, the rights and aspirations of Afghan women, and the men who support them, remain largely unfulfilled. The vast majority of Afghan women suffer a significant human rights deficit; for them, human rights are values, standards, and entitlements that exist only in theory and at times, not even on paper. The government of Afghanistan, in partnership with civil society and other actors, should provide leadership and commitment in rolling back the phenomenon of violence against women. The government must meet its responsibilities to protect, respect and fulfill women's rights, including its responsibility to end impunity through prosecuting perpetrators of violence against women and girls in Afghanistan
Afghanistan : annual report on protection of civilians in armed conflict( )

in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

UNAMA remains concerned at the high level of civilian casualties from the ongoing armed conflict in Afghanistan and believes more has to be done by all parties to the conflict to reduce the impact on civilians. While certain pro-government forces have been responsive to the issue of civilian casualties arising from their operations, civilian deaths caused by air-strikes is still a serious concern. AGEs continue to undertake asymmetric attacks and conduct operations in civilian areas, particularly suicide bombings, heedless of the toll on civilians

Afghanistan : human rights and protection of civilians in armed conflict : special report on Kunduz Province by United Nations( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This special report on the human rights situation in Kunduz province was prepared by the Human Rights Unit of the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan. The report covers the period from 28 September to 13 October 2015 and presents the preliminary findings by UNAMA regarding civilian protection concerns, potential violations of international humanitarian law and human rights violations and abuses following the Taliban's attack and control of Kunduz city, the initial phase of the counter-offensive by pro-Government Forces and the period that ensued until Government forces regained control of the city. The report documents harm inflicted on civilians and civilian property, and related human rights concerns. UNAMA received credible reports of 848 civilian casualties (289 deaths and 559 injured) that occurred in Kunduz city and surrounding districts between 28 September and 13 October. These figures are preliminary and may increase as UNAMA continues its efforts to verify additional civilian casualty reports with three types of sources. The vast majority of casualties documented so far resulted from ground fighting that could not be attributed solely to one party, and 67 of these casualties (30 deaths and 37 injured) resulted from an airstrike carried out by international military forces on a Médecins Sans Frontières hospital on 3 October. The battle following the Taliban's attack on the city led to a loss of protection of the most basic human rights, including the rights to life and security of person. The deterioration of security, the breakdown of the rule of law and the absence of governance enabled an environment in which civilians were subjected to arbitrary killings, assault, other forms of violence, including gender-based violence, threats and widespread criminality
