For nearly 40 years, the biggest challenges in Afghanistan have been peace and security. In addition to the problem of personal safety in many parts of the country, the security challenges facing Afghanistan have had serious and long-term effects on every aspect of Afghan society, including discouraging domestic and international business investments, job growth and social and cultural dysfunction. Without peace and security, Afghanistan cannot begin to cure itself of decades of violence. Many of ACC’s members have long-standing experience in the security apparatus (Afghan and international).
