AREU: Transitional Justice - Views from the Ground on How Afghanistan Fares, November 2016

Subject: Peacebuilding

Transitional justice is a vehicle that renews the trust between the population and the state. It is the range of processes and mechanisms associated with society’s attempts to come to terms with the legacy of large-scale abuses, to ensure accountability, serve justice, and achieve reconciliation. Speaking to respondents across five Afghan provinces, this study seeks the views of Afghans on their preferred transitional justice policies, and whether these policies should be a precursor or linked to the peace process. Further, the research specifically seeks the views on whether any type of compromises should be made in the current context. In particular, it asks across five provinces whether accountability for past human rights abuses remains a priority.
