National Human Rights Action Plan of the Republic of Kazakhstan 2009-2012.
The National Human Rights Action Plan of Kazakhstan for the years 2009-2012 constitutes a consolidated program of planned concrete steps for the improvement of legislation and practices of its application, the national system of protection of human rights, and the education of the population regarding human rights and mechanisms of their protection. The National Plan was prepared and founded according to the results of the baseline report “On the Situation of Human Rights in Kazakhstan,” as analyzed by governmental agencies, nongovernmental organizations for the protection of human rights, and international organizations, using data from a sociological survey.
Establishing positive dynamics in the development of the country’s mechanisms for the protection of human rights, the National Plan reveals the presence of gaps in the legislative base and practices of application of rights, and the absence of sufficient coordination and systematization in the work of governmental institutions and nongovernmental organizations for the protection of human rights.
Implementation of the recommendations of the National Plan will allow Kazakhstan to make new achievements in the formation of a legal government, strengthen governmental and social mechanisms for the protection of human rights, and create a well-developed civil society on a level with generally accepted international standards.
