Afghanistan and Regional Policy Initiative
The Afghanistan and Regional Policy Initiative serves as a platform to raise awareness about Afghanistan and the region’s peace, security, and development challenges. It seeks to provide policy options or solutions for overcoming these challenges at the national, regional, and multilateral levels. The Initiative carries out public education, facilitates dialogue, and carries out consultation between critical actors—including women, civil society, and formal and informal members of the policy community—involved in innovative thinking to address the challenges and opportunities in Afghanistan and the region.
The Initiative is directed by Rina Amiri, a non-resident/senior fellow at the NYU Center on International Cooperation.
