In Central and South Asia ‘the terrorist threat emanating from Afghanistan is perceived to be growing, with foreign fighters who have returned from the Syrian Arab Republic and Iraq increasing their numbers in Afghanistan’. SADF has dedicated a great deal of research papers to the challenges facing Afghanistan, for instance its Policy Brief nº2 titled ‘Combatting Jihadism in Afghanistan’. The present Working Paper nº14 builds on said SADF Policy Brief nº2 by reiterating the importance of confronting jihadism beyond the prism of security measures and the futility of engaging in peace talks with the Taliban. Reconstruction and state building in Afghanistan are emphasised as a realistic alternative to the present peace talks with the Taliban.
