Afghanistan

Overview

This work has taken place in the context of a difficult transition from Taliban rule to new democratic institutions. While political organizations and civil society groups have made some progress in advancing democratic political processes, more needs to be done to protect gains Afghanistan has made in democratic governance, political pluralism and the protection of human rights, especially the rights of women.As the country’s National Unity Government tackles political and electoral reforms and prepares to conduct long delayed parliamentary elections, Afghan civil society and political groups need to be fully engaged in the reform process. NDI is supporting the work of Afghan civil society organizations to hold forums and dialogues that bring together civic groups, political parties, government bodies and election authorities on these reforms.
