Civil Society and Human Rights Network(CSHRN)

In August of 2004, 25 human rights organizations registered the Civil Society and Human Rights Network (CSHRN) at the Ministry of Justice. In February of 2011, according to the general assembly of CSHRN, the Network registered with the official name of Civil Society and Human Right Organization (CSHRO) at the Ministry of Economy. We (CSHRO) are organized as a nationwide network of 160 civil society organizations representing broad segments of the Afghan society in Kabul and in five provin¬ces. Our members work in a variety of areas such as women’s issues, transitional justice, radio- and TV production and printed media, but we are all bound together by our common commit¬ment to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and our common determination to promote human rights and to consistently apply rights-based approaches to what we do.
