Support Human Rights and Rule of Law
Afghanistan is one of the post-conflict countries and undergoing a democratic transition, ordinary citizens have suffered from widespread and sustained abuse and deprivation of their human rights. This debasing legacy poses important concerns for the development of civil society and complicates the transition to democracy. In most cases, more than a generation has grown up without being able to experience or practice many of their basic human rights or related values, such as social and political tolerance, civility, and civic trust. Many segments that are essential to a democratic transition are missing, or greatly misunderstood: the role of democratic political opposition; limits on the government,
minority rights under majority rule; the accountability of government; women’s equality; and the rights and responsibilities of an independent media.
