Was von Kundus bleibt. Intervention, Gewalt und Soziale Ordnung in Afghanistan

Release date: 2016-11

This article investigates interdependencies between intervening powers and local dynamics in Afghanistan in general and with a focus on the Kunduz region between 2001 and 2015. Using the concept of „Social Order“ the authors analyse how understandings of contexts and self-understandings of intervening forces as well as their practices influenced the dynamic of local conflict and led to international repercussions. The intervention in Afghanistan can be seen as an outstanding case to study the change from liberal peace to policing. This change, as it seems currently, is concomitant with shifts in war strategies and international politics.
