This paper summarizes the main achievements and challenges for Afghan women’s participation in politics and their access to justice. It also presents the most important reflections amongst key stakeholders about possible ways forward, with the aim of facilitating further discussions in these areas.

of the entire justice system?
• What is the political space for reform in family legislation,
and which reforms (marriage, divorce, custody or inheritance)
would be most important for the status of Afghan
