The Afghanistan Project

The Afghanistan Project is the international hub for Afghanistan related research and policy work.

The US withdrawal from Afghanistan leaves behind a humanitarian crisis and an intellectual void as thousands of Afghan scholars and policymakers who have helped transform Afghanistan society flee their home. The Project addresses the plight of these scholars and the loss of scholarly leadership in Afghanistan by:

1. Providing a scholarly home for scholars and policy leaders seeking asylum in the United States.

2. Establishing a hub for Afghanistan research and policy analysis

3. Amplifying voices of Afghan scholars. Home to top scholars and policy thinkers, the Afghanistan Project is a primary platform for Afghanistan’s thought leaders, a venue of engagement for a global community of scholars looking for engaged knowledge, as well as media looking for perspective.

The Afghanistan Project is an initiative of the Center for Governance and Markets (CGM), a global policy research center housed within the Graduate School of Public and International Affairs (GSPIA) at the University of Pittsburgh.
