Rethinking drug policy from a peacebuilding perspective

This project looked at issues of drug trafficking and organised crime in Afghanistan, the Colombia-Peru border and Nigeria, culminating in the production of a research report.

Over the past few years, we have seen a wave of drug policy reform and reflection across the world, from Colombia to Mexico and Uruguay and even some parts of the United States. These changes gave us a critical opportunity to discuss the successes and challenges of current drug control policies.

Strengthening women’s role in peace in Afghanistan

This project is tackling gender inequality and the poor treatment of women and girls in Afghanistan, including gender-based violence, which remains a big problem in the country.  

National policies have not generated palpable change for most women in Afghanistan for various reasons, including a disconnect between national and provincial levels.

This project is overcoming these gaps and improving the living conditions of target communities by increasing gender equality, which in turn supports inclusive peace and security.
