AIHRC is a national human rights institution (NHRI) under the Paris Principles. Established in Article 58 of Afghanistan’s constitution, with its precise structure, duties, and mandate detailed in AIHRC Law (Law 3471), AIHRC’s mission is to protect and promote the human rights of all Afghans regardless of ethnicity, region, or political affiliation. An independent NHRI, AIHRC receives funding from international donors, philanthropic foundations, and the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GoIRA). In 2019, the Global Alliance of National Human Rights Institutions (GANHRI) sub-committee on Accreditation (SCA) re-accredited AIHRC with ‘A’ status. ‘A’ status is awarded to NHRIs fully compliant with the Paris Principles; specifically, AIHRC was found to have fulfilled the criteria of ‘a broad mandate, based on universal human rights norms and standards; autonomy from government; independence guaranteed by statute or constitution; pluralism; adequate resources; and adequate powers of investigation’.
In 2019, nine new Commissioners were appointed, including a new Chairperson. The Commissioners have breadth and depth of human rights experience across AIHRC’s principal thematic areas: human rights education, ombudsman, research, women’s rights, children’s rights, persons with disabilities, special investigations, and monitoring and investigation. AIHRC is an NHRI protecting and promoting human rights in the context of one of the world’s deadliest conflicts; annually, Afghanistan has over 10,000 civilian casualties. In addition, it is the deadliest conflict in the world for children.
The survey will capture perceptions on relevant victim-centered justice-related issues such as harms caused by conflict, reparations, compensation, etc. The survey may include, but is not limited to, the following concerns:
- Respondents’ needs (current and post-conflict) – livelihoods, housing, other financial needs, education, health, etc;
- Respondents’ experiences as victims, witnesses, or perpetrators of violence, injustice, indignity, human rights abuses, mental health/community support;
- Respondents’ experience of accessing compensation (victims compensation); their understanding of what compensation they are entitled to;
- Respondents’ understanding of their rights, their access, and enjoyment of rights; their understanding and past experience of justice; including accountability, truth-seeking, reconciliation, reparations;
- Respondents’ desire/need for accountability through judicial and non-judicial processes and mechanisms;
