Human Rights and Democracy

Human Rights and Democracy is a given in the Federal Constitution. Human Rights in Somalia falls under the Ministry of Women and Human Rights. A Human Rights Task Force was established in Feb of 2013 to strengthen the protection of individual rights. In addition to that, the Federal Government of Somalia in December 2014 organized a public awareness campaign, it passed by a new 54 point national Child Protection Act, and finished legislation on a Human Rights Commission Bill. Somalia stands on the right side of Justice, and has improved greatly as government institutions and legislative reforms have made this a priority on their agenda.
