Monitoring for Justice – Strengthening Civil Society in Promoting Human Rights in Kyrgyzstan
The Max Planck Foundation has entered into a partnership with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation and Kyrgyz women’s rights and environmental protection organisations BIOM and ALGA to support greater human rights compliance and protection in the areas of gender, privacy and the environment with its project Monitoring for Justice – Strengthening Civil Society in Promoting Human Rights in Kyrgyzstan, funded by the European Union.
From 2022 to 2025, the Max Planck Foundation supports representatives of the various branches of the Kyrgyz state, as well as members of civil society, to advance rights protection through their work. Joint activities will include the design and improvement of monitoring mechanisms to realise the Kyrgyz Republic’s promise to respect, protect and fulfil human rights obligations as enshrined in its constitution and the international treaty frameworks to which Kyrgyzstan is party.
Joint endeavours will range from comprehensive baseline research to tailored activities with stakeholders, convening policymakers, legal professionals, journalists and civil society in working groups, training sessions and other instructive as well as dialogical settings. Emphasis will be placed on the technical development and refinement of monitoring solutions, enabling members of the state and civil society alike to exert greater scrutiny of rights compliance, identify latent protection gaps and contribute to effective enforcement.
