Exploring Primary Justice in Insecure Contexts: South Sudan and Afghanistan

Publication date: 29 Nov 2016 Organization: Cordaid and the Van Vollenhoven Institute

The Van Vollenhoven Institute, Cordaid and local partners in Afghanistan and South Sudan have published their findings from the socio-legal research project exploring people's justice concerns and experiences with a variety of state and non-state justice providers.

This synergy report provides a brief summary of these country reports and an analysis of the combined findings from Afghanistan and South Sudan. It discusses some of the main challenges, similarities and differences, with particular attention to the ‘elements that work’ within both state and non-state justice mechanisms, in both countries.

The research project was part of the "Supporting Primary Justice in Insecure Contexts: South Sudan and Afghanistan" project funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs and administered by NWO-WOTRO in collaboration with the Platform.
