Originally set up by graduate students at the Department of War Studies, King’s College London, the Afghanistan Studies Group (ASG) aims to provide a forum for cross-disciplinary discussion and debate on topics relating to Afghan affairs. In particular it seeks to explore issues that improve the opportunity for dialogue and understanding between Afghan people and the international community.

ASG’s objectives are:

  • To provide a cross-disciplinary research forum for the discussion of topics that improve understanding of Afghan history, culture, politics, and society
  • To engage in respectful dialogue taking account of a variety of opinions and perspectives on the past, present, and future of Afghanistan and Afghan affairs
  • To provide the opportunity for greater understanding and to improve the quality of debate surrounding these topics by prompting dialogue between varied communities.

ASG aims to pursue these objectives through online discussion forums, by publishing articles by respected academics, journalists, students and writers, and by hosting events at the group’s host institution, King’s College London, Department of War Studies.
