We warmly invite you to this year's conference on Afghanistan on Saturday, November 18th 2023.

Recent developments in Afghanistan have brought significant changes to the country, including fundamental challenges to economic stability, access to healthcare, and education. The international community, civil society organizations, and academic institutions are responsible for assessing these challenges, proposing solutions, and working with the Afghan people to support their development aspirations.

To do so, the Working Group Afghanistan at the University of Education Freiburg welcomes all participants to the conference on "Economy, Health, and Education in Today’s Afghanistan.”

This conference provides an excellent platform for experts, scholars, practitioners, and policymakers to come together, share insights and experiences, and discuss solutions regarding the current situation in Afghanistan. In keynotes, workshops, panel discussions, and poster presentations, the conference aims to explore the status quo of the three major components of human development, economy, health, and education, provide analytical lenses, and identify potential strategies to overcome the current challenges.
