Title: Afghan wars and their impact on rural life: 19th-20th century.
Author: Khan, Imtiyaz Gul (Scholar); Kaw, Mushtaq A. (Guide)
Abstract: The Afghan wars present an illustrious example of contemporary conflicts, often described as complex political emergencies‘ (CPEs). These are the offshoot of diverse factors related to ethno-national, ethno-geographic, ethno economic, ethno-religious and ethno-sectarian manifestations. In order to comprehend these conflicts in entirety, one needs to take regard to Afghanistan‘s historico-cultural and linguistic dynamics, socio-economic structure, religio-tribal ideologies, and geostrategic and geo-political stereotypes. The relative impact of each factor, however, changes with time and space presupposing the, little or large, impact of each factor on the six sets of conflicts which engulfed the country from time to time. These conflicts were the product of the First Anglo-Afghan War (1839-1842), Second Anglo-Afghan War (1878-1881), the Third Anglo-Afghan War (May 6, 1919- 3 June 1919), Soviet Occupation of Afghanistan (1979), Taliban regime and the US Invasion of Afghanistan in the post-9/11 scenario. Importantly, the current Afghan conflict embodies horrendous consequences for the country‘s survival on the one hand and regional and global security on the other. For obvious limitations, the present study is based on the existing body of literature, including scholarly works, journals, magazines, encyclopedias, information available in UN documents and statements, press reports and commentaries, besides reports compiled by various agencies in Afghanistan: (i) Swedish Committee for Afghanistan(SCA), (ii) Afghanistan Research and Evaluation Unit (AREU), (iii) Human Rights Watch (HRW), (iv) International Community of the Red Cross (ICRC), (v) Centre for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS), (vi) British Agencies Afghanistan Group (BAAG), (vii) Action Aid, (viii) UNDP, (ix) UNICEF, (x) UNESCO, (xi) Amnesty International (AI), (xii) Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan (RAWA).
