On 30th January 2019, Dr. Ellinor Zeino, the newly appointed Country Director of Konrad Adenauer Stiftung (KAS) in Afghanistan visited the Centre for Conflict and Peace Studies and met Hekmatullah Azamy, the CAPS’ Deputy Director. In the meeting,  Mustafa Hotaki, Sabawoon Zwak, both researchers at CAPS and AllahDad Balkhi, CAPS Advisory Shura (CAS) member were also present.

Mr. Azamy welcomed Dr. Zeino and her colleague Khalid Ghanai to CAPS and briefed them about CAPS’ activities in details. The two also discussed peace talks with the Taliban, the presence of different transnational militant groups and upcoming presidential elections in Afghanistan.

Dr. Zeino said CAPS’ work perfectly fits KAS interest as the latter focuses on geopolitical and security understanding of the region. KAS expressed willingness to partner with CAPS in conducting quality research on peace and security in Afghanistan and the region.

Finally, Dr. Zeino invited Mr. Azamy to speak at an upcoming international workshop on regional extremism and Jihadism to be held in May 2019 in KAS.
