About Us

Discourse Afghanistan is an open research and analysis centre studying afghanistan and related issues.
Discourse Afghanistan recognises a deficiency in quality evidence-based research and literature on Afghanistan, and aims to build a library of reliable, unbiased and up-to-date information on Afghanistan. Discourse Afghanistan offers a platform from which to share and access evidence-based research about Afghanistan; from its history, culture and literature to its geography, scientific and technological developments.
We welcome and publish articles and papers on technical matters relating to Afghanistan. The articles should, ideally, be original and not published elsewhere.
Academics, professionals and students across all disciplines are invited to submit original articles for publication on this website. Articles may come in the form of primary research, reviews, news analysis, viewpoints or creative writing, and be written in either English, Pashto or Dari. Video and audio-format submissions may also be considered.
Eventhough, Discourse Afghanistan publishes political analyses, and current affair commentaries, please note that, in line with our mission statement, politically polarised articles will not be considered for publication.
All Discourse publications are peer reviewed by a team of dedicated editors, who are on hand to provide extensive editorial support and advice to all contributing authors. We have devised publication guidelines to help you write and correctly reference your article (see: Submission Guidelines and Guidelines on How to Write an Academic Article).
Also as part of Discourse Afghanistan initiative, we plan to hold seminars, conferences and debates to generate dialogue and discussions on published and prospective works related to Afghanistan. The initiative supports efforts to enhance public and professional knowledge and understanding of Afghanistan and its people.
If you are interested in submitting an article to Discourse Afghanistan, or if you have any other queries, please contact the Discourse Afghanistan team
Discourse Afghanistan is a sister organization to Afghan Professionals Network APn, and share a number of long and medium term goals and strategic objectives. The two organizations join efforts to forward their common goals through various means and platforms.

The Discourse Hour

The Discourse Hour is a monthly event series to discuss topics that are of importance to Afghanistan and its people. The aim is to encourage productive dialogue between intellects within the Afghan community as well as those who have professional interests and expertise in Afghanistan, so as to create a micro ‘think tank’ to provide insights into and solutions for problems that concern Afghanistan. The initiative supports efforts to enhance public and professional knowledge and understanding of Afghanistan and its people. Meeting proceedings are published on this website.
