Piecemeal or peace deal? NATO, peace talks and political settlement in Afghanistan

Christian Aid, Open Society Foundations and the Oxford Research Group have launched a report ahead of the NATO Heads of Government Summit in Lisbon in November 2010.

NATO leaders meet in Lisbon on 19-20 November for a summit overshadowed by the war in Afghanistan and just weeks ahead of President Obama's crucial review of US strategy on the war, expected in December.

While there has been a flurry of recent reports about talks with the Taliban, underneath this surge of mood music hinting at a possible peace deal, a closer listening reveals little real change to the underlying drum beat on Afghanistan in NATO capitals.

As three organisations working across the fields of development, conflict resolution, and good governance and human rights we have come together because we believe that the international strategy on Afghanistan is at a critical point of both risk and opportunity, and must change.

The Summit will be the last chance for NATO member states to consider a change of course on Afghanistan before next month’s US policy review.
