Pushing the envelope: Creating successful and inclusive women’s rights programming in Afghanistan – what is possible and how?

Subject: Peacebuilding Women

This paper looks at the experiences of delivering the three-year European Union-funded project called 'Strengthening women’s role in peace' (2016–2019). The project  made significant progress on issues related to women’s participation and protection by adopting a considered, conflict-sensitive approach to engagement based on a thorough and nuanced understanding of the actors who are able to influence a project's activities and participants. International Alert and the Peace Training and Research Organisation (PTRO) look back at their experience of delivering this work and highlight key points that shed light on the methods and approaches that can be used in similar programming in the future.
