Kyrgyzstan tabled its voluntary human rights commitments in support for its candidacy for membership (2009-2012) on 20 April 2009.
At domestic level, Kyrgyzstan committed to ‘reinforce various national institutions…and continue its full support for their activities, including that of the Office of the Ombudsman of Kyrgyzstan.’
Internationally, it pledged to cooperate with Special Procedures, and engage with and support the work of the Council and all its mechanisms.
An analysis of steps taken by Kyrgyzstan in fulfilment of its international pledges shows that it actually participated in very few Council debates and interactive dialogues (around 5%). Kyrgyzstan did facilitate half of its Special Procedures visit requests (7 out of 14), and responded to nearly 70% of communications.
