AfghanistanNow is a digital platform that focuses on presenting a current view on Afghanistan, one supported by the stories of community change makers, data-backed reform progress and alternative narratives to the usual media headlines emphasising conflict and security. AfghanistanNow seeks to highlight the ideas and voices of Afghan citizens both inside and outside the country. It caters to a non-expert/public readership as well as an informed readership of journalists and policy-makers interested in international affairs with a focus on Afghanistan.
The past few decades has seen Afghanistan only represent war and conflict. Our aim is to provide a perception that transcends those narratives. AfghanistanNow seeks to develop a diverse understanding of the country by aiming to give people a deeper insight into its cultural, historical, political and economic aspects.
