About the report

Drawing on interviews mainly with local Taliban and civilians living in Taliban-controlled areas, this report looks at Taliban views and practices in relation to key labour norms, specifically considering Afghanistan’s obligations under international labour laws. Although fieldwork was carried out just before the Taliban’s takeover of the country, its findings have acquired special significance as the group has become the country’s de facto authority.
