WHRD, Activist
Bashtan Bashta

Chinara Sultanalieva is a member of the Kyrgyzstan-based civil movement Bashtan Bashta and an environmental activist, working on projects to promote rational use of resources, recycling and composting. She also raises environmental and good governance issues through new media platforms.


Human rights defenders (HRDs) in Kyrgyzstan are subjected to smear campaigns, attacks, intimidation, and harassment. Although there are no laws in place which directly target the work of HRDs, the legal system still does not offer protection for HRDs due to consistent corruption at all levels of government, the continuous practice of ill-treatment and torture with impunity, and the lack of independence of monitoring and oversight bodies.
