Председательство Казахстана в ОБСЕ не улучшило ситуацию с экологическими правами в стране

Crude Accountability опубликовала новый доклад «Выполнение Казахстаном обязательств ОБСЕ в области прав человека на здоровую окружающую среду», который был подготовлен в рамках сотрудничества с Центром исследования правовой политики (Алматы, Казахстан).

Remarks from Crude Accountability’s Michelle Kinman to former Senator and newly approved Chevron Board Member Chuck Hagel

Turkmenistan is one of the world’s most repressive countries, consistently receiving the lowest ranking of “not free” in Freedom House’s assessment of global political rights and civil liberties across 193 countries. If Chevron engages with a repressive regime such as Turkmenistan to secure hydrocarbons without first insisting on significant, demonstrable improvements in human rights, transparency and rule of law, it will strengthen anti-democratic tendencies and stifle the development of an already severely compromised civil society, as it has in Burma, Nigeria, Columbia and in numerous other countries around the world.
