MoU between AIHRC and FEFA (Free and Fair Election Forum of Afghanistan)
Given the acknowledged importance of both democratic elections and the significant role of women in peace-building, enhancing women’s participation in elections in post-conflict societies is essential to building peace and democracy. However, having women’s equal involvement and full participation especially in post-conflict countries is laborious and needs the integral efforts of the government institutions, civil society and private sectors. The Afghan government’s initial practices of democracy has somewhat strengthened the role of women in political processes. However, women’s participation in elections has overall been very weak. As the experiences of previous elections show lack of an effective mechanism to strengthen cooperation among government institutions and CSOs has been the substantial problem in this regard. To avoid this obstacle, it is necessary to identify the baseline challenges and enhance the level of collaboration among these entities. This MoU is executed by and between the Ministry of Women’s Affairs (hereinafter referred to as MoWA) and Free and Fair Election Forum of Afghanistan organization (hereinafter referred to as “FEFAo”).
