About This Publication: 

Women’s Professional Participation in Afghanistan’s Justice Sector: Challenges and Opportunities is the first national study following IDLO’s gender pledge. Based on a unique participatory methodology and featuring an entirely Afghan-led data collection process, the report has been welcomed by justice actors as the first of its kind in Afghanistan’s history and an important contribution to ongoing discussions concerning gender equality, women’s rights and women’s empowerment. It also comes at an important time: having emerged in 2001 from five years of devastating Taliban rule, Afghanistan is now working hard to rebuild institutions and make them sustainable and responsive to the needs of its men and women.
