Criminal Justice

Afghanistan's justice sector has suffered enormously and it still faces challenges resulting from the 30 years civil war. Although much has been accomplished and the justice system has been reanimated, specific areas such as anti-corruption, economic crime, prison/juvenile justice reform and the overall capacity of criminal justice sector need further improvement and sustainability. The rule of law in Afghanistan still requires significant investment and support by national and international stakeholders.

Sub-programme 2 aims at strengthening the rule of law, building integrity, addressing impunity, and developing a professional judicial culture, which are all essential pre-requisites for peace and stability in Afghanistan and an essential basis to address narcotics trafficking and transnational organised crime. Under the Criminal Justice Sub-programme, addressing corruption, economic crime and prison/juvenile justice reform are the main priorities.
