AUAF Joins with the European Union and Sida in working for “Preparing for Peace”
American University of Afghanistan (AUAF) is pleased to join with the European Union and the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) in a comprehensive project, “Preparing for Peace”, to help Afghanistan move toward a sustainable peace. Under the auspices of the EU Afghanistan Peace Support Mechanism (EU APSM), AUAF will work with an implementing partner to understand the challenges different regions will face and to help develop strategies for the just, lasting peace that all Afghans desire. Dr. Victoria C. Fontan, AUAF Vice President for Academic Affairs and Professor of Peace and Conflict Studies, will lead the project. AUAF looks forward to this timely partnership with the European Union and Sida, its implementing partner for EU APSM, as a complement to AUAF’s ongoing programming to promote peace and transitional justice.
