Afghan and Coalition leaders have identified the successful development of Rule of Law in Afghanistan as essential to the stability and security of that country. The multinational effort to develop Rule of Law there, while making progress, faces gender rights, human rights, and due process concerns that will remain long after the military withdrawal in 2014. This program’s experienced panel will provide “boots on ground” perspectives on both achievements and obstacles.
