The government, as a member of the United Nations, is committed to the values of the world organization and is continuously linked to the treaty and numerous UN conventions on human rights, but unfortunately as reported, these values to UN human rights structures has seen a lot challenges and difficulties. At the same time, Afghanistan government has seen the greatest transgressions of human rights in particular in the past thirty years. Lack of awareness of international human rights mechanisms and structures have been the cause for the victims of human rights violations to be unable to raise their voices about their legal difficulties outside the boundaries of Afghanistan and to the international organizations.
