Kazakhstan International Bureau for Human Rights and Rule of Law

The Kazakhstan International Bureau for Human Rights and Rule of Law was established in 1993 and has since grown into one of the largest and most influential human rights organizations in Kazakhstan. With six regional branches, the Bureau monitors the human rights situation throughout Kazakhstan and disseminates its information worldwide. It also tracks developments in other Central Asian countries and conducts large-scale conferences and round-table discussions on a wide variety of issues, including the death penalty, operation of the penitentiary system, and the rights of refugees and migrants.
