Human Rights Day 2022

On Human Rights Day 2022 we welcome tangible progress on the implementation of the Cessation of Hostilities Agreement, which is key to sustainable peace in Ethiopia.  We look forward to supporting parties as they implement the agreement, including expanding humanitarian assistance, protecting civilians, and restoring basic services throughout northern Ethiopia. 

We emphasize the importance of access for international human rights monitors in conflict-affected areas and of accountability for human rights violations, including a comprehensive, inclusive, and transparent transitional justice process.
