In 2007, Karuna Center co-led a short program to strengthen the peace leadership of Afghan women in civil society and government. Participants analyzed barriers to sustainable peace  and held roundtables with more than 75 national and international policymakers.

Women's Vital Contributions

In September 2007 Karuna Center for Peacebuilding and the Initiative for Inclusive Security jointly led a six-day multi-sector training seminar in Kabul, titled Securing Afghanistan: Women’s Vital Contributions. The training culminated in a policy forum held at the Afghan Ministry of Foreign Affairs and brought together more than 60 Afghan leaders and 17 international policy makers.
