Military and Humanitarian Efforts Cooperating in Afghanistan

Swedish Troops in Afghanistan

Swedish aid organisations and the Swedish military are increasing their collaboration in Afghanistan. Swedish Minister for Aid Gunilla Carlsson sees this as a positive development towards a growing cooperation between civilian and military resources in areas of the world where Sweden is involved.

The first step is to increase the number of civilian development advisers from one to three. They will be placed at the Swedish base in Mazar-I Sharif in northern Afghanistan.

However, not everyone is pleased. Both the Swedish Committee for Afghanistan and the Swedish Peace and Arbitration Society have previously advised against mixing military and civilian efforts. The concern is that this will lead to a larger military influence on the development of Afghanistan.
