Karl Åke RogheKarl Åke Roghe

EUPOL Afghanistan (European Union Police Mission in Afghanistan) is a civilian Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) mission. It has since its establishment in 2007 supported the reform efforts of the Afghan Government in building a civilian police service that operates within an improved rule of law framework and in respect of human rights. The Mission is part of the EU's long-term commitment and contributes to the EU's overall political and strategic objectives in Afghanistan.

EUPOL Afghanistan's support is delivered by its police and rule of law experts from EU Member States, mainly through advising in relevant Afghan institutions (Ministry of Interior, Afghan National Police, Ministry of Justice, and the Attorney General's Office) in Kabul, Herat and Mazar-e Sharif. It carries out its tasks in a joint effort with the Government and in close coordination with a number of local and international partners.
