A radical new approach is needed in Afghanistan to build peace step-by-step. In this film, Accord editors Anna Larson and Alexander Ramsbotham, and Accord adviser Michael Semple, discuss what you can expect from the publication.
After 25 years of civil war in Afghanistan, today progress towards a peace process is increasingly seen as central to securing a just and stable future. But to date, there has been little analysis of what a process might actually look like.
This Accord spotlight summarises discussions from a workshop to explore priorities for peace in Afghanistan. It looks at six key themes; peacemaking in perspective, terminology, inclusion, understanding divisions, re-centring the regional stage and processing peace.
There is the opportunity now for progress towards peace in Afghanistan. But to become reality, it needs a new step-by-step approach.
