Human Rights Protection in Central Asia
Anastassiya Miller
(human rights defender from Kazakhstan, works for a local NGO, the Kazakhstan International Bureau  for Human Rights and the Rule of Law)

The EU Strategy for Central Asia recognizes that human rights, the rule of law,
good governance, and democratization underpin the long‐term political stability
and economic development of the region.
The lecture discusses the issue of the protection of civil and political rights in
the practice of Central Asian states: the freedoms of assembly, of association,
and of speech, the protection from torture, and other basic human rights. The
stories of concrete cases about the violation of human rights in Kazakhstan will
illustrate the human right situation.
