No time to lose: Promoting the Accountability of the Afghan National Security Forces

This paper outlines key concerns regarding the conduct of the ANSF, with a focus on violations of human rights and humanitarian law, and provides a brief analysis of the legal responsibilities of states that support the ANSF.  The paper concludes with a discussion (and critique) of some of the more significant recent initiatives to promote accountability, and recommends action to be taken by the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan (GIRoA) and international donors to improve the accountability of the ANSF and better protect Afghan civilians.
