Argentina: Key human rights concerns in Argentina: Submission to the UN Universal Periodic Review
In this submission, prepared for the UN Universal Periodic Review of Argentina, Amnesty International comments on the implementation of recommendations that the government supported during its previous UPR in April 2008. The organization also comments on current concerns such as impediments blocking the access of women and girls to legal abortion. The organization has continued to document attacks on Indigenous leaders over land claims and forced evictions of Indigenous communities. Prisoners in Argentina face overcrowding and poor prison conditions and allegations of torture and ill-treatment are still being reported.
