Central Asia

The region is characterised by grave inadequacies when it comes to accessing the justice system and where corruption is rife. In Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan freedom of speech and freedom of assembly are systematically violated on an ongoing basis. Human rights defenders are under constant pressure and scrutiny. Civil Rights Defenders have been involved in monitoring the situation in Central Asia for years, and aim to support human rights defenders who work in the region and encounter many obstacles from the authoritarian regimes as they carry out their vital work advocating for human rights.
