A lack of education and the absence of cultural understanding were among the reasons cited for human rights violations in Afghanistan at the Afghanistan and State Building Symposium last Friday, hosted by the La Verne College of Law. The symposium, well attended by local and international dignitaries, featured panel speakers from Afghanistan, the U.S. Afghan Women’s Council and Harvard – all of whom shared their views on human rights violations.
More than 70 people, of whom many were lawyers, gathered in the Campus Center to examine the reconstruction of Afghanistan and the United States’ role in the rebuilding process.
Military, government, academia high-ranking officials and policymakers united for the common interest of law in post-conflict states – in this instance, Afghanistan.
A symposium on the future of Afghanistan is scheduled for April 15-17.
