The Institute for Afghan Studies (IAS) is a
non-profit, non-political and independent organization, founded and
run by young Afghan scholars from around the globe. The
mission of the Institute is to be a center for research and a
credible source of information about Afghanistan.
The Institute promotes research on social,
economic, political and other issues of critical importance
pertaining to Afghanistan by providing a forum and soliciting
contributions from recognized Afghan and non-Afghan scholars,
think-tanks and experts on Afghan studies.
The Institute, nevertheless, is of the belief and
conviction that Afghans themselves have the best source of
information and solutions for the numerous problems facing
Afghanistan today. To this end, it encourages and makes possible
quality interaction between informed, educated and professional
Afghans around the globe.
