Welcome to the Working Group Afghanistan

In fall 2014, a working group interested in the complex topic of Afghanistan in the broadest sense was established at the University of Education Freiburg by the Professorship for General Sociology with a Focus on Educational Research. After the events of 2021, the working group was formalized and intensified its activities in research, training, and practice. We officially formalized a 'Arbeitsstelle Afghanistan' at the University of Education Freiburg. The goal of this working group is to conduct in-depth research on the topic of Afghanistan and the Afghan diaspora along with the three areas of education, health, and sociology.

On this website, we would like to inform you about our past and present projects. Moreover, we describe our theoretical approaches in order to keep our perspectives in the context of the complex research on Afghanistan as transparent as possible.

The working group consists of a 5-member directorate and various members. The working groups cooperates closely with external researchers and partners. (See members)
