Visit the 3D YouTube channel or website for full list of videos.
Afghan civil society peacebuilding efforts are robust. A wide range of individuals and organizations are working to build bridges across social divides, to teach people peaceful ways of addressing conflicts, to promote rule of law, participatory governance and human rights, and to create democratic decision-making forums for addressing the root causes of conflicts.
During her December 2009 visit to Afghanistan, 3D Director Lisa Schirch filmed 11 videos highlighting these efforts. Click here to watch all 11 videos on 3D's YouTube Channel or the 3D website.
The videos, while not comprehensive of all peacebuilding efforts, provide a glimpse of the work of organizations like Cooperation for Peace and Unity (CPAU), Center for Conflict and PeaceStudies (CAPS), Open Society Institute (OSI), Islamic Empowerment Party's Peace Jirga, Help the Afghan Children (HTAC), Afghan Independent Human Rights Commission (AIHRC), Sanayee Development Organization (SDO) and more. More information can be found at the websites for each of these organizations.
