New publication “Exodus from Afghanistan“
Afghanistan is still a long way away from developing its economy and implementing peaceful conflict resolution mechanisms. In BICC Policy Brief 52018 “Exodus from Afghanistan: How Germany can support the agency of Afghans in protracted displacement” the authors Katja Mielke and Elke Grawert discuss how Germany can support the agency of Afghans in protracted displacement.
In the recent Policy Brief “Exodus from Afghanistan: How Germany can support the agency of Afghans in protracted displacement” the authors, based on their field research, in particular recommend:
Take the initiative for Afghanistan in the Global Compact for Migration: For labour market policy measures and simplified money transfers.
Enshrine the rights of internally displaced people and refugees in regional host countries in the Global Compact on Refugees.
No deportations or repatriation programmes from Germany, the EU, Iran and Pakistan without a guarantee of sustainably secure living conditions.
Germany needs an immigration law that is also beneficial to people from Afghanistan.
Extend vocational training and employment schemes to areas which are not under full control of the Afghan government.
