Afghanistan entered a new period of instability in 2014



(Last Updated On: January 30, 2015)


Human Rights Watch in a recent report announced that Afghanistan entered to a new period of instability in the year 2014 that had important effects on Human Rights.

According to the report Human Rights violation in Afghanistan had a remarkable increase.

About Afghanistan, the report pointed at Afghanistan presidential election that said the charges of corruption from rival teams caused political stalemate and simultaneously with the fate of political transition, Taliban’s pressure caused the increase of human rights violation.

According to Human Rights Watch most of the victims of armed attacks in Afghanistan were civilians.

The human rights situation in Afghanistan continues to face serious challenges, with the 2014 elections and scheduled conclusion of security transition creating an environment of uncertainty, including for human rights. Many Afghans, especially women, fear that achievements made in the protection and promotion of human rights since 2001 will be increasingly at risk.

Child casualties were 36 per cent higher than those recorded in 2013. During the first 11 months of 2013, at least nine children were killed or injured every two days in Afghanistan. July and August 2013 were the worst months on record for children, with 214 injured and 196 killed in the armed conflict.

Violence, discrimination and harmful practices against women remain systemic and entrenched; landmark protections for women, including the 2009 Law on the Elimination of Violence against Women, have been questioned.

As security transition proceeds in 2014 and Afghan National Security Forces take full responsibility for civilian protection and command and control of all military operations.

Human rights in Afghanistan is a topic of some controversy and conflict. While the Taliban were well known for numerous human rights abuses, several human rights violations continue to take place in the post-Taliban government era.
