Community Peace Building Approach in the Context of Afghanistan

Syeda Farjana Ahmed


As peace building, we understand that it seeks to prevent violence and help people to recover from violence, mostly structural violence. It also helps people to conduct their relationships to promote sustainable coexistence (Schirch, 2004). Puzzle can be raise how we can strength community level peace building process to build structural stability besides peace keeping. I will talk about the community peace building sustained by traditional Afghan society and their own strategies. This is to represent the idea that “people are the best resource for sustaining peace” (Tadjbakhsh, 2005). Some practices of peace building definitely should rise where peace building can address state building as well in regard to the responses from local and international role players in dealing with the challenges of operating in an uncertain and weak structured country where vision for a sustainable change is not clear.  I would like to show how nation state building process can be addressed with this local peace building activities which is merely called as community based development aimed for social coordination and civic involvement. Besides, problems with the top down approach of government and how other factors influence will also be discussed.
