Report Brie on Afghanistan: challenges and prospects for the future, plenary session of the EP
A draft resolution drawn up by Andre Brie, Member of the EP and Member of the Committeeon Foreign Affairs, Human Rights, Common Security and Defence Policy, say that lack of security and the slow pace of reconstruction in Afghanistan have trapped the country in a "vicious circle". Members of the Committee are primarily concerned about the situation of Afghan women, and believe that a strategy to improve the situation of women must be "a priority for the nation". They welcome the ratification of the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women by the Afghan Transitional Authority (ATA), but they call on the ATA to "regularly, publicly and unequivocally" condemn violence against women and girls. The report also urges the Council and the Commission to assist the ATA in setting up a country-wide system of safe shelters and support services to protect women and girls from further oppression. They express support for the new Constitution adopted on 4 January by the Loya Jirga. They remain concerned, however, about a number of issues, such as limitations on the right of freedom of expression and freedom of religion. They also point out that the Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC) cannot bring human rights violations to court. Another cause for concern is the fact that among the constitutional Loya Jirga members are commanders and warlords who may reject anything which they see as strengthening the central government.
