Resource type:

Paper (general)


This document provides an overview of the child justice system in Afghanistan.

PDF document

The report emphasises that although there have been clear gains in establishing a separate justice system for children, the practical reality is that the formal state apparatus with ministries, institutions and representatives at the different regional levels, often works in parallel to a customary justice system which operates in rural or volatile areas. Little is known about the way that children are treated in the informal system and there is a legitimate concern that children who are in contact with the justice system do not have their rights respected.
