Afghanistan: Amnesty International’s recommendations regarding refugee returns

Amnesty International continues to be concerned that the situation in Afghanistan is not conducive for the promotion of voluntary repatriation. The organization is further concerned that, in the rush to negotiate agreements for the return of Afghan refugees and asylum seekers, states are not paying due attention to the fact that voluntary repatriation is one durable solution to a refugee’s plight, not the only durable solution. Amnesty International therefore urges states to ensure that local integration continues to be available to those Afghans recognised as refugees in their countries for whom this is the best solution, and also to maintain resettlement commitments, in particular on the basis of family reunification.
