Scope and content

Human Rights Office
The records of the Human Rights Office contain information about human rights educational efforts of the United Nations Tajikistan Office of Peace Building (UNTOP). Activities in this area are described in monthly reports prepared by the UNTOP Human Rights Officer. The reports provide information about: the status of freedom of the press and freedom of association; the rights of Tajik migrant workers; the trials of former combatants; the use of capital punishment; and human rights monitoring carried out by non-governmental organizations in the region. There are also records of the Human Rights Thematic Group, a forum that convened representatives of United Nations agencies and international organizations under the chairmanship of UNTOP. Its aim was to promote and support human rights protection and national capacity building in human rights in Tajikistan. The Thematic Group’s records consist of agenda, summaries of meetings, and project briefs. In addition, there is information about workshops in human rights protection carried out by UNTOP, and a report, dated June 2002, on local compliance with the Convention on Elimination of all Forms of Discrimination Against Women (CEDAW).
