The Afghanistan Future Thought Forum (AFTF) is a new initiative that brings together leading Afghan figures in policymaking and scholarship in a high-level, nonpartisan platform to support the ongoing peace process. Present initiatives in Afghanistan suffer from the lack of publicly debated domestic ideas on the country's post-agreement future.

The Forum produces advanced, independent and evidence-based analysis on the challenges and opportunities facing Afghanistan, in view of the signing of the Doha Declaration of Principles Agreement between the United States and the Taliban on 29 February 2020.

The analysis will then be disseminated through formal and non-formal, national and international outlets for the creation of a technical capacity base of expertise in Afghanistan that supports sustainable pathways to peace and development.
