Afghanistan Under the Taliban: A State of "Gender Apartheid"?
Since the Taliban takeover of Afghanistan in August 2021, Afghan women have suffered a severe rollback of rights, from denial of education to restrictions on movement to a lack of participation in the economy. The country now is in a state of "Gender Apartheid". Considering the significance of the matter, Afghanistan Policy Lab conducted a policy paper Afghanistan Under the Taliban: A State of "Gender Apartheid"? where we discussed the scope and impact of directives and restrictions issued by the Taliban on women and girls. We analyzed how these actions violate international human rights norms and guarantees made under the previous government’s Afghanistan National Action Plan.
To reflect on the matter further, we would like to hold an event at SPIA-APL. Our goal is to elaborate more on the analysis and discuss the paper’s argument and recommendations and educate our targeted stakeholders.
