Afghanistan's para-military policing in context: the risks of expediency

By Antonio Giustozzi and Mohammad Isaqzada

Abstract

Despite representing the bulk of Afghanistan’s post-2001 policing, the paramilitary dimension of the Afghan police has received little attention among analysts. In AAN's latest report, 'Paramilitary Policing in Context. The Risks of Expediency', Antonio Giustozzi and Mohammad Isaqzadeh describe the origin and development of paramilitary policing in Afghanistan, and explore what this means for the prospects of a smooth transition and future stability
