PROJECT

Afghanistan – Rule of Law Stabilization Program – Informal Component (Phase 3)

2012-2014

A continuation of informal sector projects that started in 2010, Phase 3 built on earlier work focusing on the core objectives of strengthening traditional dispute resolution (TDR) mechanisms, enhancing linkages between the formal and informal systems, and facilitating the resolution of long-standing and destabilizing disputes. Checchi worked to improve access to justice, increase confidence in TDR mechanisms as a means to resolve disputes, and decrease the number of long-standing intractable disputes. The fundamental aim of Checchi’s district level interventions was to create accessible, efficient, holistic, equitable, and sustainable systems that could not only improve justice and dispute resolution in these particular districts, but that could serve as tested models for adaptation and replication throughout Afghanistan.
