BURUNDI – Annual report on the human rights situation Edition 2023 :PROMOTING THE RULE OF LAW THROUGH INCLUSIVE DIALOGUE AT NATIONAL, REGIONAL AND INTERNATIONAL LEVEL

SOCIO-POLITICAL, ECONOMIC AND REGIONAL CONTEXT

In December 2023, the President of the Republic, Evariste Ndayishimiye, reaffirmed his government’s commitment that “the protection of human rights remains Burundi’s battle horse”, while reassuring that the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights on 10 December 2023 came “at a time when Burundi is striving for the well-being of all, without discrimination of any kind”.

But the reality is that, on the one hand, previous human rights violations persisted during 2023 and, on the other, new internal and regional political developments took place with a negative impact on fundamental rights and freedoms.

Highlights of 2023 include continuing violations of political freedoms, an economy marked by growing shortages to the detriment of consumers, and an ambiguous attitude on the part of the Burundian authorities towards the DRC conflict and the Burundian rebel movement Red-Tabara.
