Ensuring justice for all, in line with Afghan and international commitments to achieving SDG16+, is an essential prerequisite for a durable peace. Today, only 38% of Afghans who experience an everyday justice problem are able to access help; among key state institutions, the courts are the least-trusted by ordinary citizens. Access to justice will enable Afghan women and men to assert and enforce their rights, obtain redress for grievances, and resolve disputes amongst themselves non-violently, within a framework of rule of law.
This event provides a space for consultation and policy discussion on the role of access to justice in securing a peaceful and stable future, and how GoIRA and international stakeholders can incorporate justice commitments in the lead-up to and during the conference. This event aims to contribute to shifting justice to the top of the agenda in Geneva, and present practical recommendations for how to operationalise commitments to justice.
