Minister responds to Lord Alton's question on bringing proceedings against Afghanistan for its violations of the Genocide Convention with regard to the Hazara





To ask His Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the Hazara Inquiry's recommendation to bring proceedings against Afghanistan for its violations of the Genocide Convention with regard to the Hazara in Afghanistan.



Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon


19 March 2024


The Inquiry's report has done much to raise awareness of the situation of Hazaras in Afghanistan. FCDO officials have noted the report's recommendations and will continue to closely monitor the situation of Hazaras in Afghanistan. In line with the report's recommendations, we are documenting discrimination and abuses against Hazaras, both through the UN and other institutions, and through our own programme work.

More broadly, officials from the UK Mission to Afghanistan regularly press Taliban acting ministers and Afghan officials to protect religious and ethnic minorities, including Shia Muslims and Hazara communities.
