SCA/ENNA international conference 6-7 November in Stockholm
Peace is still a long way off in Afghanistan and many questions remain. What do peacebuilding efforts look like in the country? What roles do the Afghan authorities, the International Community, the UN and the Nato-led ISAF forces play? Do they contribute to peace or armed conflict? Are there local initiatives at grassroots level promoting peace and how does the civilian population contribute to the reconstruction of the country? Why does Afghanistan receive so little funding for reconstruction compared to other areas of armed conflict? Have the complex developments in Afghanistan become something that the West would rather not have to deal with? What actions are needed in order for Afghanistan to become a country of peace and stability?
Join us and listen to the world's most eminent experts on Afghanistan discuss these and other important questions during two days in November in Stockholm.
