Improving peaceful relationships through trust-building Track II dialogues in Afghanistan’s Neighbourhood

South Asia is one of the most volatile regions in the world. The conflict in Afghanistan contributes to further destabilization of the region, preventing lasting peace and development. The German engagement as part of the ISAF, working towards peace and security, is a key objective of the work of FES in Afghanistan. Through its regional project “Envisioning a Secure and Independent Afghanistan Post 2014 – Perspectives and Strategies for Constructive Conflict Resolution from the Neighbourhood”, FES aims at generating national and regional policy recommendations, focusing on the transitional period and thereby ensuring a peaceful Afghanistan from the perspective of all neighbouring states.

As part of this initiative, FES supports regional cooperation and the building of mutual trust among key figures from politics and civil society in Afghanistan and its neighbouring countries by means of facilitating inter-regional Track II dialogues, contributing to policy proposals that aim at easing political tensions in a conflict-ridden region.

Towards this goal, FES has established a regional network of influential experts and representatives from Afghanistan, Central Asia, China, India and Pakistan exchanging views and visions for the post 2014-region. The Policy Groups engage in inter-regional Track II dialogues with experts from China, Iran, Russia and Turkey on aspects of peace, stability and economic development in Afghanistan, thereby creating “communication channels” in the region.

The results of these dialogues are communicated as policy briefs to decision-makers, media and civil society in the concerned countries, the region as well as in international policy-making circles in Germany and within the European Union.
