Conflictual peacebuilding: Afghanistan two years after Bonn
The report examines the development in Afghanistan between December 2001 and February 2004. Three standards are relevant for such an examination, ranging from the simple to the complex:
- The text of the Bonn Agreement itself: Were the goals outlined in the Agreement met and the strategies followed? Was the timetable adhered to?
- The relevance of the Bonn Agreement to the Afghan situation: Was the Bonn Agreement a good script for creating security and rebuilding the Afghan state and economy?
- The implicit political and ethical standards of intervention to change a regime: Did the intervention and related assistance strategies improve the political, socio-economic and security situation in Afghanistan?
