Renowned Oslo-based Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO, go to website here) has published an updated version of Thomas Ruttig’s “Conflict Portrait: Afghanistan” that, in turn, had come out (then in German) at the German Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung (Federal Centre for Political Education), a main web-based collection of information for teachers, students and the general public, and is regularly (bi-annualy) updated.
The short and condensed conflict portrait looks at:
- events after 2014 when Ashraf Ghani was elected new president, the National Unity Government took over and the ISAF mission ended and was replaced by Resolute Support;
- current causes and background of the conflict, including the socio-economic crisis;
- approaches to solve the conflict politically;
- and has a short conflict history.
Read the conflict portrait here.
There also will be soon an update German version of the conflict portrait, here (where you can still find the 2015 version).
