Caring for Their Own: A Stronger Afghan Response to Civilian Harm

Caring for their Own: A Stronger Afghan Response to Civilian Harm examines the Afghan government’s response to civilian harm, including how it conducts investigations and assists civilians caught in the conflict. Based on more than 180 interviews, this is the first report that documents and analyzes how and whether Afghan policies for addressing civilian harm work for those they intend to serve—the thousands of Afghan civilians harmed every year due to war.

The report shows that urgent reforms are needed in the Afghan government’s response to civilian harm caused by other warring parties and by its own security forces.
