Gender and Public Participation in Afghanistan

Implications for Aid, Transparency and Accountability

The foreword of the book is written by Ms. Shinkai Karokhail, famous Afghan women rights activist and former member of the parliament who is currently Afghanistan's ambassador to Canada. Many observers wonder why billions of dollars in foreign aid spent in Afghanistan during the last 16 years has not made a considerable impact on good governance, poverty reduction, gender equality, and human rights. Still around 36 percent of the population lives below the poverty line, gender inequality is very high, and Afghanistan remains one of the most corrupt countries in the world. One of the reasons for this is that the responsible authorities have failed to establish an accountable and transparent government. There are strong arguments to blame the Afghan government or international donors/organizations providing aid for their policies resulting in such failures in security, infrastructure and economic development, however, the blame itself cannot take the Afghan nation anywhere rather than making all more depressed. It is important to look for the root cause of the problems. One of the key causes of these problems, I believe, is weak public participation in planning, budgeting, and delivery of services to the people. The Afghan government and its international financial supporters have failed to fulfill expectations of the Afghan people and spend billions of dollars in a transparent and effective way. This book discusses within the context of budgeting and planning the role of gender and participation, two very closely interconnected issues in these processes and explores how these could better promote accountability and transparency. The book includes examples of good practices in gender and participation from the international perspective and to what extent they could be applied in Afghanistan. The book is arranged into ten chapters. The first chapter introduces the concept of "gender" and "public participation.
