Second Afghan Legal Studies Conference in Kabul

Second Afghan Legal Studies Conference took place in Kabul from 16–18 November 2015 after having been launched last year

The conference series pursues a unique concept in the context of Afghanistan: to bring together renowned Afghan and international legal scholars to discuss current and fundamental academic legal issues related to Afghanistan. This year, the conference was attended by Afghan, Iranian, German and Indian scholars who addressed current legal developments and their theoretical underpinnings in one of the five main thematic areas: international law, public law, private law, criminal law and interdisciplinary and Islamic studies. Among the presenters were four PhD candidates from the Hamida Barmaki PhD scholarship programme. The conference was opened by H.E. the German Ambassador to Afghanistan, Mr. Markus Potzel, and Mohammad Ashraf Rasooli, Legal Advisor to the Afghan Ministry of Justice.

The conference was funded by the German Foreign office, as part of the PhD programme for Afghan Jurists.
