Public-Private Partnership for Justice Reform in Afghanistan


Washington, DC
December 13, 2007

This new initiative is an opportunity for America's legal community to support development of the rule of law in Afghanistan. The partnership will allow firms to demonstrate their commitment to improving the justice system in Afghanistan by funding low-cost, high-impact projects promoting women's rights, access to justice, legal aid, professional development, and other important justice-related activities.  State Dept. photos
