Freedom of opinion and expression, freedom of assembly, freedom of conscience and freedom of religion remain high on the agenda of civil society, especially in the times of the Covid 19 pandemic. The issues of implementation of decisions and recommendations of various international agencies in support of these freedoms, such as the UN, also require greater government involvement and attention and monitoring by civil society.
In a series of videos and podcasts produced by the DRA together with PA "Dignity", experts from Germany and Kazakhstan discuss the human rights aspects in their countries. In this way, it is possible to look at the German experience on some issues of guaranteeing human rights and freedoms and to compare the relevant processes in Germany with the situation in Kazakhstan.
