ABSTRACT
The United States' mission in Afghanistan is to create a stable, democratic country that will no longer serve as a stronghold for terrorist organizations. Since the U.S. takeover in 2001, most rule-of-law promotion has focused on urban centers, allowing the Taliban to gain traction in rural areas by creating its own alternative justice system. This Note discusses the primary obstacles preventing citizens in rural Afghanistan from accessing the state justice system and suggests solutions to those obstacles.
