Report - Women and Peace Building in Afghanistan

Afghanistan is one of four Oxfam country programs delivering Within and Without the State (WWS) program. It is funded by the United Kingdom Department for International Development (DFID) from 2011 to 2016 under the Conflict, Humanitarian and Security Programme Partnership Arrangement (CHASE PPA). WWS is piloting innovation approaches to working with civil society to promote more accountable governance in conflict-affected and fragile contexts. The paper shares the program learning within Oxfam and the wider development community. In Afghanistan, WWS has been working to build the capacity of civil society and to promote the participation of women, youth, and other marginalized groups in the peace process. Essential to this is the ability of women to engage with power-holders to share their views of what peace means to them and to influence change at the community, district, provincial, and national levels.
