Promoting Economic Empowerment of Women in Afghanistan through

Legal, Regulatory and Policy Reform 2015

This study looked into some of the reasons why women face obstacles to economic empowerment, and the context of those obstacles through legal, regulatory and policy frameworks. Two broad categories were addressed: business activities and inheritance. Both topics were widely canvassed and recommendations put forward on how the economic condition of women can be improved.
