Afghanistan: political crisis and the refugee

This document expresses Amnesty International’s concern in 1993 that hundreds of Afghan asylum seekers in Europe, North America and other countries may be subjected to deportation to Afghanistan where they could risk serious human rights violations. It outlines the risk of refoulment, particularly for educated women, academics, members of religious and ethnic minorities, former government officials, and civilians fleeing war. It also provides a brief guide to the principal Mujahideen parties in Afghanistan and their administrative instruments.
