Women’s Rights and the Peace Process in Afghanistan
Georgetown University School of Foreign Service
This project implements key recommendations from the WFI-supported Georgetown University School of Foreign Service scholarly teams in 2019-2020 for Women's Activities and Social Services Association and Women for Afghan Women. These recommendations include the promotion of women's rights in Islam as an integral part of the peace-building process. This year, WFI will support a team of scholars and students at Georgetown University under the direction of Ambassador Melanne Verveer and Dr. Ayse Kadayifci-Orellana to produce materials including A Toolkit on Islamic Sources of Peace, Democracy and Women’s Rights for Afghan Women Negotiators that engage Afghan negotiators and other key actors such as religious leaders to create the unity required to stabilize Afghanistan.
