Abstract

After nearly forty years of perpetual bloody conflict in Afghanistan, the Afghan Peace Volunteers (APV) —a small cohort of multi-ethnic Afghans— have concluded that nonviolence is not merely effective, it is essential for the long-term stability of their nation. Established in 2008 as Our Journey to Smile, the APV is a publicly identifiable organization promoting peaceful change in Afghanistan. Its members have now spent five years living out an experiment in peacemaking.
