Checchi: Inviting CSOs and NGOs for ADALAT Traditional Dispute Resolution (TDR) Grants Program

Deadline: 23 September 2017

Checchi and Company Consulting Inc. (Checchi) is currently inviting registered CSOs and NGOs to submit proposals for its ADALAT Traditional Dispute Resolution (TDR) Grants Program.

Traditional dispute resolution (TDR) is widely familiar and trusted in Afghanistan as it effectively serves the primary cultural objective of reconciling disputants and maintaining community harmony. Even formal justice actors, recognizing these essential strengths and the limitations of their own institutions, continue to rely heavily on the traditional justice system, referring many cases to TDR. TDR actors are also vulnerable to manipulation by powerful individuals (as are formal justice actors) and lack the means to separate intransigent disputants and enforce justice outcomes. While both formal and informal justice have strengths and weaknesses, collaboration between the two is often unstructured and ad-hoc, missing an opportunity for value-added collaboration.
