Building Peace and Connectivity through Research and Dialogue

Policy

As a specialist foreign policy think tank, we offer advice and analysis on policy issues and challenges affecting Afghanistan’s relationship with its neighbours and regional and international partners.

In particular, in collaboration with our partners within and outside the region, we:

• Provide advice and support to governments, non-governmental organisations, civil society and multilateral organisations;

• Facilitate the setting up of ‘Communities of Practice’ – professionals involved in the same field – involving government and non-governmental organisations from countries across the region; and

• Promote media interaction among countries of the region, with a particular focus on information sharing and highlighting the shared cultural heritage across the region.
