(CSHRN) Civil Society and Human Rights Organization
In August 2004, 24 human rights organizations registered the Civil Society and Human Rights Network in the Ministry of Justice and according to the general assembly of (CSHRN), the Network registered in February 2011 with the Ministry of Economy with the official name of Civil Society and Human Right Organization (CSHRO). We are organized as a nationwide network of 82 civil society organizations representing broad segments of the Afghan society in Kabul and in four provinces. Our members work in a variety of areas such as women’s issues, transitional justice, radio- and TV production, printed media, but we are all bound together by our common commitment to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and our common determination to promote human rights and to consistently apply rights based approaches to what we do.
We firmly believe that Afghanistan can become a society based on democracy and the rule of law in accordance with human rights. This belief has become our vision so accordingly, we expect our society to become a nation, where all people are aware of their rights and where they dare to claim them through the rule of law.
We are currently very engaged in:
- Promoting the role of women in peace, stability and security
- Conflict transformation
- Reduction of domestic violence
- Access to Information
We want to establish a capable human rights movement and to increase the understanding and the respect for human rights and the rule of law. It is an ambitious task we have taken upon us, and our tools are modest. We engage in dialogues, we organize symposiums, conferences and workshops as we have experienced that the most sustainable path to improvement is by mutual acknowledgement, inclusion and exchange of views. We firmly believe that rule of law can only be realized in an environment of a vibrant rights based civil society and on citizens’ access to participate in the governance of the country in safety and dignity. It is the right of our people to enjoy full access to the fundamental freedoms and to strive for the improvement and realization of social and economic rights.
Our network has been systematically built up since its embryonic start in 2002, and its establishment as a network in 2004. We have a thorough planning as the basis of our activities and our approach is strategic, participatory and thoroughly democratic. We are accountable and transparent; our members all have full access to network information; we work within the framework of our Constitution, and we are based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Through our nationwide network structure, we have achieved an unparalleled outreach, considering that we are just one organisation. We are for instance in current contact to remote areas such as Kunar, Nuristan, Qundus, Takhar, Faryab, Farah and Daikundi provinces. We manage to work under circumstances where security considerations both politically and in the very physical sense must be included in all activities at all times. Our nationwide presence proves that our knowledge on human rights, of our strategic approach and of our ability to enter into a dialogue are valuable and essential for our work under difficult circumstances.
