Peace and Security

South Asia is one of the most volatile regions in the world and the regional dimension of the conflict in Afghanistan contributes to further destabilization of the region, preventing lasting peace and development. FES aims at generating national and regional policy recommendations, focusing on the transitional period and the future of a peaceful Afghanistan from the perspective of all neighbouring states.

PEace and Security_provide a platformWe provide a platform to improve bilateral relations and support multilateral cooperation through civil society dialogues.

Peace and Security - enabling environment

We enable an environment for open discussion of national interest vis-à-vis the future of Afghanistan. Issues that cannot be brought to the negotiation table between governments because of political conflicts are discussed here.

Peace and Security_building trustWe build trust and lasting networks among key stakeholders in the fragile region. Lasting communication channels are being established in the regions, which also function during conflict. The project strives to strengthen the ties of regional cooperation and to build trust between key figures in both Afghanistan and the region.

Peace and Security_assist policy groupsWe assist Policy Groups in advising decision-makers and government representatives through policy recommendations that are designed to support a peaceful and prosperous Afghanistan. The outputs of the Policy Group dialogues are available as policy papers to decision-makers, media and civil society in the region as well as to the wider international policy-making community.

Workshop: Fluchtursachen verstehen - Krieg, Not, Vertreibung

May 6, 2017, 10:00am

Kurt-Schumacher-Haus

Zum Seminar: Der Beginn der Afghanistan-Intervention, die als Vergeltung für 9/11 begann, jährte sich vor kurzem zum 15. Mal. Es ist die Zeit der großen Bilanzen – wie erfolgreich war der „war on terror“? Was hat der Westen in Afghanistan erreicht? Warum bilden die Afghanen gerade die zweitgrößte Flüchtlingsgruppe in Deutschland, wo man doch vor zwei Jahren den fast vollständigen Abzug der Truppen aus Afghanistan als Erfolg präsentierte? Jetzt, ausgerechnet im blutigsten Jahr der Intervention beginnt Deutschland damit, abgelehnte afghanische AsylbewerberInnen abzuschieben. Programm: Im Workshop wollen wir gemeinsam die Hintergründe dieser politischen Entwicklung strukturieren und diskutieren. Nach einer kurzen Filmvorführung werden wir dabei auch versuchen, am Beispiel der afghanischen Flüchtlinge nachzuvollziehen, ob und wie sich Kriegsflüchtlinge und Wirtschaftsmigranten unterscheiden lassen, wie es zur großen Abwanderungsbewegung 2016/2017 kam und was daraus für eine bessere Flüchtlingspolitik im allgemeinen und Afghanistan-Politik im besonderen (in Deutschland wie vor Ort) zu lernen ist. Wir freuen uns, diesen Workshop gemeinsam mit dem Ökonomen Alexey Yusupov von der Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (ehem. Afghanistan) durchführen zu können. Wir bitten Euch um vorherige kurze Anmeldung unter kreis.mitte@spd.de bis zum 30 April 2017. Ort: Kurt-Schumacher-Haus, Müllerstr. 163, 13353 Berlin (in der Galerie des August-Bebel-Instituts) Termin: Samstag, der 06. Mai 2017, von 10 - 14 Uhr In Namen des Bildungsteams der Parteischule Mathias Schulz (Bildungsbeauftragter der SPD Mitte)
