Strategies and Structures in Preventing Conflict
Hazaras are one of the largest ethnic groups of Afghanistan, living predominately in the central highland called the Hazarajat. There are 24 districts in Hazarajat and Jaghori is one of the largest. All inhabitants of Jaghori are Hazaras who speak Hazaragi Dari and practice the Shia sect of Islam. This report conducts research into the decisions taken at the time the Taliban came to take the province and explores the rational between fight or flight as the Hazars perceived it, as well as exploring mechanisms used to mitigate negative Taliban originating social effects. The report highlights the work of Shura’s in working for and achieving societal goals.
