The Support for Non-State Justice Providers and Advocates for Peace in Afghanistan project contains two complementary components which will focus on: 1) enhancing the efficacy and responsiveness of the informal justice sector within Kunduz province - with a focus on the protection and promotion of women's rights - by building the capacity of non-state justice providers and strengthening coordination between state and non-state justice mechanisms; and 2) establishing community-based Advocates for Peace Groups (APGs) in four provinces (Kunduz, Parwan, Bamyan and Balkh) committed to acting as agents for resolving conflicts at the local level and promoting inclusive and participatory strategies to mitigate conflict and promote peace and social reconciliation. The two components of the project have been designed to contribute to the long-term goal of stabilizing Afghanistan using a 'bottom up' approach, through enhanced access to justice and the promotion of inclusive and meaningful peacebuilding strategies.
