Responsibility for basic and human rights following the withdrawal from Afghanistan
On Germany’s duty to protect particularly vulnerable Afghans
This paper demonstrates the extent to which Germany has a duty to protect the basic and human rights of people in Afghanistan as a consequence of the international military mission and the withdrawal of international troops. This duty is about protecting people who are in physical and mortal danger. It stems from the right to life and physical integrity enshrined in Germany’s Basic Law and in human rights treaties.
