In addition, there are the Afghan National Police (ANP) warlords and armed militias with a total of 149,000 members. The security expenses are largely financed from abroad.

Administration

Afghanistan is divided into 34 provinces (welayat) under the leadership of governors (appointed by the central government) and elected provincial councils as well as 298 districts.

Law

In addition to the constitution, the basis of the legal system is the Petersberg Agreement of 2001. According to this, all existing legal provisions apply, insofar as they do not conflict with Afghanistan’s international obligations, i.e. H. also the old codifications in civil law (1977), criminal law (1976) and commercial law (1955). Civil law is based, in particular, on Islamic law with Hanefite characteristics (Hanefites) and is modeled on the Egyptian civil code of 1949. The criminal law is based on Islamic criminal law.

In addition to written law, there is also uncoded law: Islamic law and customary law (especially Pashtuwali). In fact, these sources of law are more important than written law, which is largely unknown, especially in rural areas. The application and implementation of the law cannot be verified, in many places there are no state courts or they are not active. In rural areas, the traditional gatherings of elders (jirga) continue to be the main conflict resolution mechanism, as the civil war has largely destroyed state structures, if any. At the head of the judiciary is the Supreme Court. The nine judges are appointed by the president for ten years.

Education

The constitution places the structuring of the educational system in the guideline competence of the state and imposes a special responsibility on the state for the promotion of Islamic religious education. The school system, which in fact did not exist between 1996 and 2001, is currently being rebuilt (started in Kabul and some larger cities). It is divided into a six-year elementary school (compulsory), a three-year middle and a three-year higher secondary school, which concludes with a diploma (baccaluria). Despite compulsory schooling of nine years, not all children of a year attend elementary school for a long time and only slightly more than half attend secondary school.

The pillars of the higher education system are around 30 state, partly Islamic universities, among others. in Kabul (founded in 1932), Jalalabad (founded in 1962), Herat (founded in 1988), Mazar-e Sharif (founded in 1986) and Kandahar (founded in 1991). In addition, there is a polytechnic, an agricultural and a state medical institute in Kabul, as well as several colleges for teacher training across the country. Almost 80 private higher education institutions complete the range of courses.

Until the systematic construction of a public school system in the 1960s were the Koranic schools and madrasas few modern, d. H. schools that do not focus solely or primarily on religious educational content. In the 1970s, girls and women gained access to schools, universities and vocational training facilities to a greater extent than ever before. Today around 40% of elementary school students are girls, at universities the proportion of women is 50%. Under the Taliban rule A more or less regulated elementary school instruction was only possible for boys and only in a few urban Koran schools. With very few exceptions, girls and women were excluded from any training, gainful employment or occupation and severely punished for disregarding this prohibition.

Media

The 2004 constitution grants freedom of expression and freedom of the press, but the political and social environment hinders free journalistic work. Compared to the neighboring states of Afghanistan, however, the variety of private media is great.

Press: After the end of the Taliban regime, the first press organ to appear was the state bulletin »Anis« (founded in 1915). Other newspapers include the English-language newspapers “Kabul Times” (state-owned, founded in 1962), “Daily Outlook Afghanistan” (founded in 2004) and “Khaama Press” (also in Dari, founded in 2010), both independent, as well as a few other daily newspapers with some four-digit circulation figures Dari and Pashto.

News agencies: In addition to the official Bakhtar News Agency (BNA; founded 1939) there are several independent news agencies.

Radio: Radio and television could only work to a limited extent or were banned under the Taliban. Today there are more than 300 radio stations and more than 100 TV channels, including those of the state-owned Radio Television Afghanistan (RTA). The most important private TV channels are »Tolo TV«, 1 TV and »Ariana TV«. Foreign channels such as Al-Djazira and BBC World Service can also be received.
