Summary: “The objective of this study was to produce an analysis of the scope and dynamics of land based conflicts in Afghanistan with a special focus on conflicts in Paktia Province located in the Southeast of Afghanistan. Scarce resources, the weak Afghan state, social norms, population movements and the presence of different social groups were identified as the structural factors of land based conflicts in Afghanistan. These structural factors, considered necessary but not sufficient causes of conflict, were exacerbated by a set of different factors making up the conflict dynamics (e.g., the legacy of war and frequent regime changes). The most important conflict dynamics identified for Paktia relate to the history of land policies, state presence/ outreach and local power struggles.” (Executive summary).
