Afghanistan’s First Lady Rula Ghani on Advancing Reforms

Nearly four decades of warfare has eroded the rule of law in Afghanistan, leaving the country’s people with limited access to professional civilian police, state courts and other formal systems for securing justice. In his inaugural address, President Ashraf Ghani named the reform of such systems as a central goal. On May 13, Afghanistan’s First Lady Rula Ghani discussed her country’s history of violent conflict and recent progress and challenges in reforming the justice sector, including for women.
