The Afghanistan war has been the longest in US history. On-going negotiations have brought a glimmer of hope that finally, peace may be at hand.


A group of Afghan intellectuals and international experts established in Europe, with the assistance of the School of International Relations and Diplomacy of SWISS UMEF UNIVERSITY in Geneva, will meet on February 22, 2019, to discuss peace prospects, the conditions under which peace could be attained and the international impact of a possible peace.


The United Nations, the European Union, the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, the United Nations Human Rights Council as well as the Embassies or representatives in Bern or Geneva of the following countries: United States, Afghanistan, Russia, China, India, Iran, Pakistan, Turkey, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, Qatar, the UAE, Saudi Arabia, Vietnam have been invited to participate in this meeting.


Some of the questions this meeting will address are:

  • How can we ensure that the progress made over the last 18 years be maintained?

  • Why is the UN not involved in the peace process?

  • Who will guarantee that the country will not return to the situation of a civil war as in 1992?

  • What would be the priorities of a government in which the Taliban would participate?

  • How would the budget of the Afghan government be secured in the future?

  • What are the election mechanisms that will be put in place to ensure that results are accepted by all parties without recourse to an internal conflict?

  • Would human rights be safeguarded?

  • How would relations with its neighbours, in particular India, Iran and Pakistan, evolve?


These questions will be analyzed by the intellectuals participating in this meeting and will materialise in a conclusion which will be sent to the United Nations and the United States.
