The Shiite Personal Status Law: ACBAR Presentation

The Shiite Personal Status Law: ACBAR Presentation

On October 14 2009, the Agency Coordinating Body for Afghan Relief (ACBAR) and the Afghanistan Research and Evaluation Unit (AREU) presented the first in a lecture/discussion series based on recent and ongoing AREU research findings. The basic format of these series includes a presentation followed by question-and-answer session and open discussion. This first event was focused on the recently released AREU report, “A Closer Look — The Policy and Lawmaking Process Behind the Shiite Personal Status Law” by Lauryn Oates. Presenting were Zaman Sultani of AREU, who was directly involved in the research, and Sarah Parkinson, AREU’s Communications and Advocacy Manager.
