The Jirga in modern day Afghanistan
from the article by Ali Gohar in OPen Democracy:
....The working principals of the Jirga are community based and fact finding; it acts like a modern jury system. The Jirga intervenes to halt violence, identify the issues in order to resolve them through mediation or arbitration, and work towards reconciliation and rehabilitation. The Jirga system could also be described in terms of the three aspects of peacekeeping, peacemaking, and peacebuilding, through the use of Tega (ceasefire), Nagha (ban on arms show), Community Policing (Arbakai) and volunteer force (Lakhkar).
Transitional justice law last resort for ending Yemen's conflict
Political parties and civil society organizations in Yemen are now engaging in heated debates on the draft Transitional Justice Law presented by the Ministry of Legal Affairs earlier this month.
....The main purpose of this law, according to Al-Mikhlafi, is to end conflict between Yemenis by compensating the victims of local crises from 1994 until 2012, while maintaining the immunity clause included in the Gulf Initiative signed by parties of the current government.
