SEEK And New Women Connectors Briefing Paper Series 

After 40 years of prolonged war, Afghanistan is again in the face of a humanitarian crisis.  SEEK and New Women Connectors collaborated with refugee rights organizations for consultations with Afghan refugees and experts to map the road ahead for what the EU and partners can do to plan an emergency response for the current situation in Afghanistan, particularly for women and girls.

The UNSCR 1325 reaffirms that women must have an important role in peace-building, peace negotiations, prevention and resolution of conflicts. SEEK and New Women Connectors held series of dialogs with women peace-builders and human rights defenders to highlight areas necessitating urgent attention to realise WPS agenda.
