  • Prove they are alive!

    Watch Turkmenistan video:

    Prove they are alive!

    12 years ago, on 25 November 2002, a group of political opposition leaders in Turkmenistan was accused of an alleged assassination attempt on then President Niyazov, in what appeared to be a failed political coup. The members of that group were arrested and quickly imprisoned without proper trials, along with family members and others who were swept up in the frenzy around the event. Since then, the families of the imprisoned have not received any news about them, have not been able to see them, and, in many cases, family members were also subject to imprisonment and harassment. As a member of the Prove they are alive! campaign, the NHC demand that the government of Turkmenistan government inform the families of the disappeared about their whereabouts and condition.

  • Usbekistan: Å rapportere fra et lukket land

    NHC's Sentral-Asia kontor:

    Usbekistan: Å rapportere fra et lukket land

    Det sentralasiatiske landet Usbekistan regnes som et av verdens mest brutale regimer. Det er i dag et mer eller mindre lukket land der hverken journalister eller menneskerettighetsorganisasjoner har tilgang. Ivar Dale, leder for NHCs kontor i Sentral-Asia, har derfor ikke anledning til å åpent undersøke menneskerettighetsbrudd i Usbekistan.

Policy Papers

  • Russia's Foreign Agent Law

    Policy Paper 6/2014:

    Russia's Foreign Agent Law

    The NHC presents our sixth policy paper of 2014. The so-called Foreign Agents Law has already hit hundreds of non-governmental organizations unwilling to register, and its chilling effect is no longer a prediction but a reality. The paper argues that the Foreign Agents Law has dire consequences for Russian civil society, violates human rights and should be repealed.

  • Russia’s traditional values initiative result in abuse at domestic level

    Policy Paper 5/2014:

    Russia’s traditional values initiative result in abuse at domestic level

    The NHC presents our fifth policy paper of 2014. The policy paper shows how a Russian sponsored initiative at the UN Human Rights Council has been targeting core tenets of international human rights. The proponents of the initiative have camouflaged it as laying out new ways of promoting human rights. Traditional values of humankind are a tool to strengthen and underpin human rights at the local level, they claim. In reality, the initiative threatens to destroy consensus among the states of the world on how they should honor their human rights obligations.
