Pakistan Must End Campaign Targeting Afghan Refugees

By USCRI November 7, 2023

Millions of Afghan refugees in Pakistan are at risk under a Pakistan government decree for Afghan nationals to repatriate to Afghanistan. Vulnerable Afghans face an unthinkable choice— stay in Pakistan with dwindling opportunities in an increasingly hostile environment, or return to Afghanistan, where they face persecution and other harm under the Taliban’s repressive rule.

This snapshot report covers the situation of Afghan refugees in Pakistan, the government of Pakistan’s policies of repatriation and deportation, and cross-border migration in recent weeks. It concludes with recommendations for Pakistan on protecting Afghans in its territory and for the United States on pathways to resettlement for Afghans.
