Human Rights

UNDP works with national partners to protect human rights, especially on behalf of the most vulnerable groups: minorities, women, people living in poverty, and people with disabilities.

In addition to legislative reforms, and implementing core human rights conventions, upholding human rights also requires addressing discrimination and social exclusion.

With support from UNDP, many national partners throughout the region have improved voting rights, social services and employment opportunities for victims of conflict, people living in poverty and people with disabilities.

As UNDP continues its work in the region, we will push for more accountable government, dynamic civil society and active citizens engaged in human rights and justice.
