Law & Political Science


Bachelor or master’s in political science is the analysis of the fundamental problems within societies.

There are three major understandings one can have through an undergraduate political science program. First, it tells you about the operation and interaction of government. Second, it informs you about the impact of a country’s policies on economic stability and growth. Finally, it instructs about the effect law has on social and political changes. Politics influences every aspect of a citizen’s life including education, employment, healthcare and housing.

After getting a degree in political science, as a young politician, graduates will make decisions for the betterment of the society by participating in political debates and getting involved in the government. Other ways you can use a political science degree is to join NGOs and support causes to make a difference in the society or candid yourself individually and make your ideas and proposals be heard.

There are many fields of study offered in Political Science; such as, domestic politics, comparative politics, international relations, political theory, public administration and public policy. Students at Kateb University study Political Science and Political Theory which are the study of contemporary theoretical perspectives such as constructivism, critical theory and postmodernism.

A Few Careers in Politics Include

In the context of Afghan Politics, political science graduates either choose to become a career politician or a political advisor.

Career Politician: If you manage to gather enough support for your ideas, you can run for a seat in the parliaments of Afghanistan (Wolesi Jirga or the Mishrano Jirga). But, first you will have to prove yourself and convince the public that you deserve their votes.

Political Advisor to Ministers, Deputy Ministers and The President of Afghanistan: Government officials do not make decisions on their own. They need advice from experts to make strategies for implementing political projects while also taking into account the impact of public perception.

Student Development Opportunities
Kateb Peace and Conflict Resolution Studies Center

Kateb Peace and Conflict Resolution Studies Center aims to study, research and work for Peace Building in Afghanistan. The Peace and Conflict Resolution Studies concept is widely known and appreciated by Universities around the world and is a good opportunity for cooperation among universities. Unlike the past, when only the countries in conflict or arbitrary states  were part of the peace building process, today, international organizations and the public play prominent role in peace building process.

Because educational and scientific institutions can play prominent role in peace building, the Political Science Department at Kateb University strives to be part of the activities to enhance the peace building process through national and international organizations and educational institutions.

Organizations such as the High Peace Council are established in the country to enhance the peace building process however these institutions have focused on practical aspects of peace building rather than its theoretical knowledge. In order to have access to sustainable peace, mechanisms that enhance the conflict resolution process and sustainable peace at most, we need to deeply study peace and conflict resolution itself. This is why the Peace and Conflict Resolution Studies center at Kateb University strives to enhance its network with the national and international research organizations in order to recognize the right platforms for research and support research ideas in the field.

Students from the political science department can become members of the Peace and Conflict Resolutions Studies. The center aims to build students’ capacity in order to be able to use the network and resources so that students can take part and initiate ideas for peace and conflict resolution studies and research. In that regards, research methodology workshops are also held for members.

Research Opportunities:

There are two different research options for students getting a degree in political science. Students can conduct independent research on their own and submit it to the Research Department for review and publication in the Kateb Scientific Research Journal or co-author or assist a professor writing a research article.

Mohammad Musa Jafari, Current Deputy of Academic Affaris at Kateb University and also a scientific board member wrote a research article as detailed below that was published in the Kateb Human Rights Journal.

Karzai’s foreign policy analysis from the perspective of the Linkage theory

Mohammad Musa Jafari

  • Scientific Board Member of Kateb University Kabul, Afghanistan



Hamid Karzai during the interim, transitional and elective government (two courses) from 2002 to 2014, was Afghanistan’s president that in terms of increasing communication channels across the region and the world, provided widespread assistance to the international community and the development of a unique democratic era behind. Afghanistan’s changing foreign policy during Karzai’s time has made foreign policy management and decision-making more important than ever, and from this perspective the question of the research has been formed; what is the influential component of foreign policy decisions during the reign of Hamid Karzai? the model of James N. Rosenau’s Linkage model was chosen to analyze Karzai’s foreign policy in order to answer this question. According to this model, in countries such as Afghanistan, which are politically open and economically developing, respectively the individual components, international system, role variable, society and government have the most influence in foreign policy decisions of the country. Using this model, the research findings showed that during the study period, although the individual component and the international system had the most impact on foreign policy decisions in the country, but contrary to the Rosenau’s Linkage model, Afghanistan’s foreign policy analysis in other cases with the model And the component of the role and society is lower than the role of government in foreign policy decision-making. Research findings are an appropriate response to the failure to take advantage of opportunities and control threats in foreign policy of the country.

Key words: Foreign policy analysis, Linkage theory, Afghanistan, Hamed Karzai

Legal Code, Justice, Rights, Liberty, Peace and Conflict Studies, Interaction between nations are the subjects of focus in master’s degree in Political Science. The degree also intersects with subjects such as the Public Policy, Economics, Law, Psychology and Sociology.


Department of Law


The Department of Law has been serving as an academic and intellectual hub for students from across Afghanistan since the inception of Kateb University.  We hire some of the most qualified degree holders as faculty members from different parts of the world.

The study of law is about a system of rules that are created and enforced through social and governmental institutions to regulate behaviors of human beings, ensure societal justice and preserve societal integrity. Lawyers are held in high esteem in a civil society as they render valuable service to all segments of the society by getting their constitutional and legal rights enforced through courts-civil or criminal, at all level of judiciary, that is trial court, high court, Supreme Court or quasi judicial institutions.

Career Paths and Scope of Work

Some of the most famous career paths awaiting graduates of law are the business world, court rooms, government offices and self initiated legal profession or even a law firm. Wherever a law graduate steps, countless doors of opportunity will open up not just locally but internationally.

Afghanistan currently has only around 4,000 registered advocates with Afghanistan Independent Bar Association for a population of over 30 millions. This counts down to just one lawyer for every 7,500 Afghans. This can statistically indicate the scope of a degree in law.

Not just this, law graduates can pursue a career in well established law firms, private business companies, Multi National Corporations, banks, telecommunication companies, legal consulting companies and government run offices like that of AIBA.

Some of the students choose to work before they pursue a master’s degree. Graduates of Criminology and Public and Private Law will be able to work as international or national lawyers, become advocates or provide legal advisory to National and International Criminal Courts, Supreme Courts, Ministry of External Affairs, embassies and consulates, national and international NGOs, ministries and corporate firms.

After getting a BA in the field, students can choose to study Restorative Criminal Justice, Public Policy, Criminal Justice Management, Crime and Justice Studies for their graduate studies. Or they may have certain other choices for instance study Political Science after getting a BA in Criminology. Or a more unexpected scenario would be studying Economics for masters after getting a BA in Criminology.

Student Development Opportunities
Law Clinic and Legal Coursework

Identifying the fatal flaw in the legal education system in Afghanistan where students are poorly trained on practical skills such as legal research, writing, and analysis, as well critical thinking. In 2016, Kateb University started to adopt a series of new courses that will provide the much needed practical training for law students. We have brought in some highly qualified instructors to teach practical skills to students. We have come to believe that without providing practical legal training courses such as the legal writing course and the pre-clinic course designed and implemented by the Asia Foundation and/ or the American University of Afghanistan (AUAF), we may not be able to compete in the market in the long term. Therefore, creating a legal clinic and offering a comprehensive legal research and legal writing course have been a top priority for us the in the last few years.

The primary purpose of the legal clinic is to help provide quality legal education and practical skills training opportunity for Law and Sharia Law students. The secondary purpose is providing quality legal aid services for indigent women, and children as well as indigent defendants in criminal cases. Students who are assigned to work at the legal clinics are evaluated by their supervisors and their performances scored based on their evaluation results. As mentioned earlier, the criteria for selecting students is gender-sensitive and we will use all our efforts to ensure gender equality and participation in the clinical education program.

Kateb University Department of Law plans to launch a public awareness campaign through radio and/or TV announcement targeting the specific populations in Kabul province. In addition to the public awareness program, we plan to hire an active defense lawyer with a good reputation among lawyers community as the clinic supervisor who might help in attracting more clients to the legal clinic.

Three of our full time faculty members including the dean of law faculty and head of law department, take the overall responsibility of the legal clinic and participate in any required training courses that will help them lead and manage the clinic in the best way possible. Benefiting from our contacts at the Asia Foundation, we have already started to teach the Foundation’s Legal Writing Course to our students as their credit for legal research courses. This course is designed to be offered in two semesters for a total of four credits. In addition, we are preparing to also teach the Foundation’s Pre-Clinic Course Manual designed to prepare students of Law and Sharia Law to assist defense lawyers at legal clinics as interns and legal fellows.

ICC Moot Court Competition

The International Criminal Moot Court (ICC) national round takes place every year in Kabul, and is organized with the support of the International Criminal Court. Teams of students from all around the country meet to discuss a fictional case where crimes within the jurisdiction of the ICC seem to have been committed. Each team is composed of six members, who play the role of the Prosecutor, the Defense and the Victims’ Legal Representative. Each member writes a thirty page or fewer memorial according to assigned role.

The ICC Moot Court is an international competition among universities which simulates the real International Criminal Court. This education and social competition is organized in the city of Hague for a total of 6 days where international students gain skills of a future international lawyer by pretending to be one. An interesting fact about ICC Moot Court is that the final round of the competition is adjudicated by real ICC judges in the ICC Court Room.

The ICC Moot Court is important to us because it teaches students more about the Rome Statute, especially within the countries that have yet to ratify it; such as, Afghanistan. During the competition students argue a hypothetical case to gain better understanding of international criminal law and ICC’s mandate and jurisprudence. Moreover, once selected to attend, students get the chance to become familiar with the Hague based international Institutions. Our fulltime faculty members work throughout the year to prepare a team for this important event. Along the faculty members, a new team of students is trained for the national, and then, international competition by the team that participated the year before.

In 2016, a team of 10 students, 2 coaches and 8 participants participated in the international ICC moot court.

Student Research

Muhammad Mahdi Batoor current law professor and a Kateb graduate undertook a research article titled, ‘Transferring Detainees in Identifying Foreign Criminal Sentences in Afghanistan Law’ published in Kateb Quarterly, Vol. 4, No. 6 Autumn 2017

To get familiar with the procedures and procedures for enforcing foreign criminal laws and regulations that are exceptionally based on the principle of non-recognition And the validity of foreign criminal sentences in the territory of the country, the researcher, despite the ambiguity of the process of transferring prisoners to Afghan law, established. The Government of Afghanistan has signed agreements on the transfer of detainees to the Russian Federation, the Islamic Republic of Iran and Tajikistan. In this way, the exchange of convicts is imprisoned Countries are subject to conditions (physical and physical). So far, 284 Afghan citizens from Tajikistan and 19 Afghan citizens from Iran have been brought in by the same procedure. On the other hand, 3 people are citizens Tajikistan and 28 Iranian nationals have been transferred to their country for the purpose of implementing and enforcing absenteeism sentences by Afghan courts. Afghan government in transferring convicts to Imprisonment with the countries that have concluded the agreement on the implementation of the extramarital sentences of the foreign country against the Afghan prisoner who transferred the proceedings and transferred to the country’s prisons is such that the sentence Extramaritalization in prisons will be imposed on directly displaced prisoners and will not interfere substantially with this criminal judgment, unless this is contrary to the principles and norms of the Afghan legislature, in This will eliminate the vacuum created by the Supreme Court by appealing to the emancipation.

Research Key words: Transfer of Prisoners, Foreign Criminal Sentence, Executor of Orders, and Transfer of Prisoners Agreement

Center for Human Rights at Kateb University

There is no place on earth today that is not affected by Human Rights phenomenon. Values, politics, culture, law and economies are all affected by this very well-known phenomenon.

Debate Club

Our Debate Club is a place where participants can learn the art of logical argumentation. Debating is a formal discussion of subjects before a jury or a public assembly. Our debating teams along with their coaches prepare for and attend different tournaments to argue on a specific topics and defend their standing stance. The participants in this club learn about the structure and format of debating. Our coaches are prominent figures who have participated in different debate tournaments at national and international levels. Model debate tournaments are organized on quarterly basis to portray a sense of real debate competition at KPDI. Debating teams from different faculties and KPDI will compete against one another to get the first place. Recently, KPDI has participated in debating tournament organized by Kardan University in which we could defeat our rival teams until semifinals. Having the capacity and talented students, we believe to attain higher places in future debating tournaments.


Our faculty members are divided into different categories to improve student development at the department other than only lecture delivery. Permanent faculty members are responsible for a number of important tasks such as delivering lectures, organizing field trips, supervising final thesis projects, supervising student research projects, organizing law clinic courses, preparing students for the ICC Moot Court and updating the curricula.

Each one of our faculty members are experts in their own fields and have contributed extensive years of their lives teaching and practicing criminology and public and private law concepts. Their experience helps ensure that our curriculum at the department is designed and updated on a timely manner.
