Abstract/Artist's Statement

This work examines the debate on transitional justice in Afghanistan. Attempts to open up the discussion has failed many times and any form of accountability for the past crimes, particularly those of former mujahideen, have been severely contested. However, for the country to move forward and for people to reconcile with their past, a transparent mechanism to deal with the past human rights crimes needs to be a top priority for the government of Afghanistan as the country prepares to elect a new leader on April of 2014.
