IOM has been implementing USAID Dignity and Rights Project since October 2015 in Kyrgyzstan and Central Asia.

The overall goal of this project is to advance human rights and dignity in Central Asia, both as an issue of public policy, as well as civic culture. In an effort to achieve this goal, the project focuses to achieve the following objectives for four of the Central Asian Countries, including Kyrgyzstan:

Objective 1: Increased citizen knowledge of, and support for, human rights norms;

Objective 2: Enhanced support systems for protecting rights and serving those whose rights have been violated;

Objective 3: Improved legal and policy framework on human rights issues.

The focus of the project and its activities are raising the awareness of the population, including the migrants, of their rights, and improving their knowledge thereof. The project also contributes to better understanding of IML (International Migration Law) protection framework supported by both governmental and non-governmental actors. The project develops state and non-state capacities in developing and/or improving adequate legislation, national action plans, quality standards for service provision, development of human resource capacity, inter-agency cooperation and coordination, monitoring and feedback, and adequate and transparent state funding. Overall, the project aims to continue addressing counter-trafficking and labor migration issues, through IOM’s programs, and to expand IOM’s response in order to address more generally human rights challenges in Central Asia.
