Judicial control of public administration is essential for the realisation of the rule of law and democracy. To date, there is virtually no effective judicial protection in Afghanistan. However, a study of Afghan legal history suggests that the country has certain - currently underdeveloped - institutions that could be used as the basis for the creation of judicial control. Based on a historical study, the book elaborates the pluralist legal culture of Afghanistan, rooted in tribal and Islamic legal conceptions alongside a State legal system. The author proposes practical solutions for the development of judicial control of public administration in Afghanistan.
