During 2010, the potential role of political reconciliation in helping to end the conflict in Afghanistan became an increasingly prominent issue, and in early October of that year  President Hamid Karzai opened the first meeting of the High Peace Council he established to start a dialogue with the Taliban.

This conference examined the role of political reconciliation processes in ending internal conflict, assessing general lessons from seven case studies, and how those lessons might apply to the current situation in Afghanistan.

The conference brought together policymakers, civilian and military practitioners, civil society representatives, and academic experts, from ‘host countries’ that have or are still experiencing internal armed conflict as well as from the international community.
