March 28th, 2007

The Killid Group (TKG) and IPS organized the first Afghan Media and Civil Society Forum with the title Media is Development, on March 28-29, 2007.

The main objectives of the Forum was to reflect on the pivotal role played by the media and civil society in the country’s efforts to transform from a war-torn country towards the building of a peaceful democracy and to assess the roles these two sectors can play to prevent a regression to conflict. The Forum was a unique opportunity for the Afghan civil society and media to come together and propose an alternative vision and renewed hope at a time when much of the public discourse about the country is dominated by warfare and destruction. The Forum successfully culminated with an important declaration, available at http://www.thekillidgroup.com/Forum/webpages/declaration.html
