Le litige d'intérêt public (LIP) consiste à recourir au système juridique d'un pays afin d'amener des changements qui affectent le public. Sur le plan international, le LIP a été décrit tour à tour comme une action visant à provoquer des changements sociaux au moyen de jugements rendus par les tribunaux, une poursuite ayant pour but d'aller au-delà des cas individuels et des clients immédiats, un ensemble d'approches fondées sur les tribunaux visant à entraîner des réformes sociales importantes, une démarche consistant à défendre une cause en intentant une poursuite judiciaire ou à aider à provoquer des changements systémiques en matière de politiques au sein de la société au nom d'individus membres de groupes sous-représentés ou désavantagés, etc. (Goldston 2006). Les juristes chinois ont aussi proposé différentes définitions du LIP. Jusqu'à maintenant, aucun consensus n'a été atteint, mais l'on s'entend généralement pour dire que le LIP représente le contraire du litige faisant intervenir l'intérêt privé. Ainsi, un LIP doit avoir des implications plus vastes, allant au-delà du cas individuel, et affecter plus de personnes que le seul demandeur

Well before international intervention began, Afghanistan had signed international conventions that protected human rights. In 1948, Afghanistan voted in favour of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Then, in 1983, Afghanistan ratified the International Covenant on Economic, Social, and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR). Finally, in 1994, Afghanistan ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child (CRC). Post-Taliban Afghanistan has been shaped by the ratification of other international instruments protecting human rights, specifically women's rights, reaffirming the importance of a further equitable development of Afghan society. In 2003, Afghanistan was the first Muslim country to ratify, without reservations, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women (CEDAW). Article 2 of CEDAW explicitly refers to the obligations of signatory states to reform or develop a constitution that reflects national principles of equality and non-discrimination
