EASO COI Report. Individuals targeted under societal and legal norms

Français

This report was drafted by the COI sector of the Information and Analysis Unit in the European Asylum Support Office (EASO).

This report covers topics on individuals targeted by socio-legal norms in Afghanistan. It was drafted in conjunction with a report on targeting by armed actors linked directly to the conflict, titled EASO Country of Origin Report: Afghanistan - Individuals targeted by armed actors in the conflict.

This report is based on desk research of public, specialised paper-based and electronic sources. The main research was completed up until 30 November 2017. In addition, during the research, EASO researchers conducted extensive interviews with several field experts.

The following cooperated in reviewing and commenting on the report:

  • Lifos – Centre for Country of Origin Information and Analysis, Swedish Migration Agency
  • United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR)
  • Neamat Nojumi, a scholar at George Mason University’s School for Conflict Analysis and Resolution with more than 20 years experience in democratisation, conflict analysis and state-building in Central and Southwest Asia
  • United Nations Assistance Mission to Afghanistan (UNAMA)

This report was written according to the EASO COI Report Methodology.

Politique de traitement

La situation sécuritaire en Afghanistan est en grand partie déterminée par un conflit armé interne de longue durée, en raison duquel un grand nombre de personnes ont été déplacées à l’intérieur du pays ou se sont réfugiées à l’étranger. Pour évaluer le besoin de protection internationale, le commissaire général tient compte du fait qu’il existe en Afghanistan des différences régionales majeures dans la situation sécuritaire et dans la nature et l’intensité de la violence.
