Horia works for Amnesty International and is fighting for human rights and women's rights in one of the world's most complicated regions – in Afghanistan. As a journalist and researcher of Amnesty International, she maps the situation in the affected regions and regularly informs about the atrocities of the Taliban and other armed groups. She established the first media organization for victims of the Afghan conflict, War Victims Network, in Afghanistan and has received several peace prizes.
Constant attacks on her home, her family and herself forced her to emigrate to the UK, where she lives today. However, she returns to Kabul regularly and continues her work. „I will keep fighting for a better Afghanistan for as long as I can. I believe that Afghans deserve a better future where their human rights are respected and protected, and I will not give up until this dream comes true,“ she says. Since 2008 she has been working as a researcher in the region for Amnesty International. In 2012 and 2015, Amnesty International awarded her the Women Rights Defender Award. She has written dozens of articles on the topic of human rights and speaks at conferences around the world. In 2003 she made a documentary about women in post-Taliban Afghanistan.
