The 'Other' Criminality: Prosecuting Taliban Crimes Against Afghans

Abstract:     
This paper explores possible legal responses to the Taliban's "other" crimes - those inflicted against Afghans during Taliban rule. This criminality largely has been rendered invisible by virtue of the international community's focus on punishing the Taliban's support of transnational terrorists, in particular al-Qaeda. This invisibility is problematic given that carefully constructed prosecutions of these "other" crimes could play an important role in post-conflict reconciliation and national reconstruction in Afghanistan. Such reconciliation and reconstruction can legitimize a representative post-conflict state and curb terrorist recidivism.
