AHRDO/ICTJ Advocacy Tour to the U.S.A.

AHRDO and ICTJ organized an international policy advocacy program to U.S. in November 2011. This event took place before the 2nd Bonn international conference on Afghanistan, which discussed the controversial initiative of reconciliation with the Afghan insurgent groups, and the mutual responsibilities of the Afghan government and that of the international community post-2014. The central objective of this advocacy was to draw international  attention to the situation of Afghan war victims, promote the  Transitional Justice Coordination Group’s policy message, develop its international networks/partners, and most importantly to build up AHRDO’s capacity to work with victims to narrativize their untold sufferings and stories.

In this advocacy trip, AHRDO conducted theatrical performance, high-level policy meetings, cultural exchange and briefings on human rights situation in Afghanistan.
