Book Description Report this book

Informal justice is an often debated yet poorly understood concept in Afghanistan. Generally, it refers to a series of mechanisms, such as local councils (shuras and jirgas), that are outside of the state’s direct control—though not necessarily beyond its influence and that are used to resolve disputes and conflicts in a manner perceived as legitimate by local communities.
