Just released, The Rule of Law in Afghanistan: Key Findings from 2019 represents the experiences and perceptions of more than 17,500 Afghans interviewed over five years, including a groundbreaking survey of Afghan inmates.
The report by the World Justice Project (WJP) presents a unique portrait of the rule of law in Afghanistan through survey data collected from the general public, in-country legal practitioners, and individuals incarcerated in the Afghan prison system. The latest edition of this report presents a comprehensive summary of the rule of law situation in Afghanistan—informed by the WJP Rule of Law Index report—as well as new, in-depth findings on the performance of the criminal justice system derived from a ground-breaking survey of Afghan inmates.
The report presents thematic briefs to highlight different facets of the rule of law as it is experienced by the population in Afghanistan. The first twelve briefs feature data derived from the WJP's General Population Poll (GPP) and Qualified Respondents' Questionnaires (QRQs). The final seven briefs feature data derived from the WJP's pilot Afghan Inmates Survey and provide unparalleled insights into inmates' experiences in Afghanistan's criminal justice system—from the moment of their arrest through the criminal trial process.
