NHC joins Human Rights appeal to EU on Central Asia policy

21 June 2012

Civil society organisations from Central Asia and Europe have issued an appeal, containing a number of suggestions to improve the effectiveness and impact of EU action to promote human rights in Central Asia.

The document has been issued on the occasion of the fifth anniversary of the EU Central Asia Strategy, and calls for a better preparation and follow up of the human rights dialogues that are established by the strategy. The appeal further urges the EU to better integrate human rights concerns into its external action towards the region, in particular in its development and trade policy.
