Our Mission

Pak Afghan Dialogue Forum is committed to promoting sustainable peace between Pakistan and Afghanistan by promoting meaningful dialogue, regional & economic cooperation building upon shared socio-cultural history and values.

Fostering Pak-Afghan Solidarity

The Aman Initiative

The Pak-Afghan ‘Aman’ (Peace) initiative was launched with the intent to foster peace and stability on the western front of South Asia. The seemingly perennial state of instability in this region has perplexed policymakers, analysts, academics, strategists, and statesmen alike for the last few decades.


In line with National Dialogue Forum’s (NDF) ethos of inclusive policymaking, the ‘Aman’ initiative will focus on ways to further cross-border solidarity by facilitating dialogue on a variety of pertinent local and regional issues. The ‘aman’ initiative will build upon the cultural similarities between people on both sides in order to eradicate misconceptions, build trust, and – most importantly – propose viable solutions to the underlying problems facing both nations. The initiative is supported by HSF Pakistan.
