Report
Amnesty

Members of the NGO coalitions against torture and other human rights groups in Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan operate in an increasingly insecure environment.

IOM Afghanistan and Tajikistan bring NGO partners together to combat human trafficking

The IOM missions in Afghanistan and Tajikistan this week hosted a meeting with civil society organizations from both countries to discuss ways to combat the problem of cross-border human trafficking.

Links between human trafficking and the drug trade also undermine cooperation between border communities, which could derive social and economic benefits from closer ties.
