  • women and girls
Contemporary forms of slavery, forced labour and trafficking in human beings are allegedly facilitated by technologies that are available on the online platforms owned by Google, as well as other private companies, such as Apple and Facebook. In Kuwait and Saudi Arabia, these online applications serve as marketing platforms that allow online users to trade migrant women and girls as housemaids. The women and girls, mostly from South East Asian, South Asian and African countries, are working and living in private households, often in slavery-like situations.

  • terrorism
  • arbitrary Detention
  • disappearances
  • executions
  • freedom of opinion and expression
  • freedom of peaceful assembly and of association
  • human rights defenders
The application of the Anti-Terrorism Law, Protest Law, Association Law, and NGO law raise serious concerns regarding increasing practices of arbitrary detention, allegations of torture, the absence of judicial oversight and procedural safeguards, restrictions on freedom of expression, the right to freedom of thought, and the right to freedom of peaceful assembly. The effects of these laws in the Sinai region have also resulted in violations of socio-economic rights including the right to education, the right to secure housing, the right to sustainable development and the rights to food and water.
