Transitions Series

The Berghof Transitions Series includes case studies initially produced within the framework of the Berghof research project Resistance/Liberation Movements and Transitions to Politics: Building a Network of Experience. Since then, we have maintained this space in order to provide an opportunity for “insider experts” from resistance/liberation movements that take part in our research and capacity-building activities to reflect critically on their past or ongoing conflict transformation experience. The views expressed are those of the authors and contributors, and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Berghof Foundation.

Transitions Series No. 13

This study analyses the peace and reconciliation efforts of the Afghan government and the armed opposition group, Hezb-e Islami. It identifies enabling factors and limitations of the peace process, the resulting agreement and its implementation, as well as lessons learnt that can be used in future peace negotiations in Afghanistan. Hezb-e Islami was founded to establish Islamic governance in Afghanistan during the 1970s. It has been one of the main resistance groups throughout the various phases of armed conflict – fighting invading Soviet forces and the Soviet-backed regime throughout the 1980s and the civil war in the 1990s, battling the Taliban for territorial control and then, after the Taliban was ousted in 2001, combatting the Afghan government and its international backers.

Peace Process Support in Times of Crises. The National Dialogue Support Programme in Yemen 2014-16

A Project Report

The National Dialogue Support Programme's aim was to strengthen and protect the political transition process by supporting locally-owned and inclusive structures and mechanisms for political dialogue, informed decision-making and trust- and consensus-building. Yet, at the same time it had to respond to the political dynamics in Yemen which changed dramatically - and at times very quickly- between February 2014 and December 2016.
