The Future of Afghanistan and International Peacebuilding
The concluding Chapter 6 synthesizes research and its connection with the broader peacebuilding and democratization literature. With special reference to Afghanistan's political transition from 2001 to 2009, the chief findings are presented in relation to this study's principal research questions and two major arguments. Despite the country's myriad, interlocking challenges, applying the democratic peacebuilding approach in Afghanistan (and elsewhere) will help overcome several shortcomings and contradictions in current political reform efforts. This will offer, arguably, the best chance for peace and other dividends for the Afghan people, as well as contribute to regional and global stability. The chapter also highlights new directions in the study of the peacebuilding and democratization nexus, including the untapped potential of the United Nations Peacebuilding Commission.
