At the Workshop on Role of Women in Peace and Stability in Afghanistan, Parwan-e-Du Campus

Kardan University's Faculty of Economics, in collaboration with Afghan Women for Peace and Unity, organized a workshop on 'Role of Women in Peace and Stability in Afghanistan' on Monday, October 12, 2020, from 9:00 to 10:30 a.m. in Parwan-e-Du Campus.

The session focused on Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly SDG16: Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions, and how women can play a decisive role in institutionalizing the peace process in Afghanistan.

More than 70 students had participated in the event discussing the demands and concerns of women regarding the peace process. Participating students discussed the following questions:

  • As a woman, what do you go through to establish peace in the country?
  • As a student, are you worried about restricting women's rights and privileges in the peace process?
  • To what extent have women stood up to preserve their rights and achievements in the last two decades in Afghanistan?
  • What can be done to achieve peace in the country while preserving the social status of women?
  • To what extent does the government maintain the current position of women in the peace process?

Towards the end, students shared their ideas about the session's effectiveness and expected to experience more of such events at Kardan University.
