Abstract

These statements by the former UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Mary Robinson, and the former US Secretary of State, Colin Powell, raise high hopes for transitional justice and Afghan women. They lead to the question of how can transitional justice in Afghanistan best address past abuses, in particular gender-based abuses? Is there a path?

The aim of transitional justice3 is to halt the culture of impunity by providing accountability for the past and preventing abuses in the future.

Keywords: Transitional Justice, Afghan Women
