Amnesty International calls for more transparency
Amnesty International's Taiwan branch is calling for more transparency in government efforts to improve human rights here in Taiwan.
According to secretary general Qiu Yi-ling, although the government launched two action plans last year as part of its pledges to improve human rights, it remains unclear what exactly it's doing to achieve those goals.
Qiu says the National Human Rights Action Plan for 2022-2024, and the Action Plan for Fisheries and Human Rights, have both failed to provide a concrete road map for various government agencies to improve human rights in the country.
Speaking to reporters, Qiu said there needs to be more transparency in efforts to tackle human rights violations and improve the rights of the LGBTI community, migrant workers, women, children, the disabled, refugees, and other vulnerable groups.
