A house divided
Can Afghan elites resolve their difference in the pursuit of peace?

Peace is possible. But lasting peace is much harder to achieve. Globally, two-thirds of all armed conflicts since the mid-1980s have resulted in peace agreements.2 However, nearly half of all countries relapse into conflict within five to ten years.In Afghanistan, there was a resurgence of violence roughly six years4
after the 2001 Bonn Agreement, a peace accord brokered by the United Nations following the US-led invasion that ended the short-lived Taliban regime.

According to our interviews, both pro-government elites and opposition leaders share the opinion that the Afghan constitution of 2004 can be altered if it offers an opportunity to bring
peace to the country.

Living principles for an inclusive Afghan Peace process

Afghan civil society at large is concerned with the seeming willingness on the part of some of its allies in the International Community to allow achievements made in the past two decades, benefitting the Afghanpopulation at large, to be sacrificed.

Afghan women have so far not been fully recognized or engaged as stakeholders or participants in the current peace talks, women ‘peace-makers’, women’s groups and female leaders all across Afghanistan have been playing key roles in conflict resolution at local, provincial and national levels through their meaningful contribution to the development of new models of peacebuilding.
