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.
