Afghanistan Reintegration Briefing Note
Published: May 27, 2010
Following the London Conference on Afghanistan in January 2010, there has been a greater acknowledgment that military means alone cannot resolve the conflict and a renewed focus on reintegration and negotiations with insurgents as a key element of the strategy to end the war. Broadly, this entails two parallel processes: negotiations with high level insurgent commanders and reintegration programs targeting low to mid level fighters. This briefing note focuses on proposed reintegration plans, with reference negotiations where relevant.
