Najeebullah Azad Peace Corner podcast

A Young Path for Peace in Afghanistan

In 2001, only two terrorist organisations existed in Afghanistan. Eighteen years later the number stands at twenty. Does the road towards peace need to be rewritten? And what role can youth and women play in ending conflict?

To answer our burning questions on peace in Afghanistan, we sat down with human rights activist Najeebullah Azad. For the Peace Corner podcast, Najeeb spoke to us about how the youth are the future of the country’s prospects for peace and how women should contribute to peacebuilding. However, women in Afghanistan are still very restricted and currently cannot engage within this role. Najeeb shatters our tunnelled vision of Afghanistan created by the international media and gives us a real insight into both the struggles and the scope of a bright and prosperous future, free of conflict.
