Urban change in Kabul and the key role of "returnees"

Dr. Azita Bathaïe

During the last decades, Iran and Pakistan hosted more than six millions of Afghans migrants. After the fall of the Taliban a large number of displaced persons returned to Afghanistan after many years of emigration in the neighborhood countries. My research deals with the mobility of young men and women of shî’a Afghan families between Iran and Afghanistan. I focus on the urban changes in west Kabul. This neighborhood offers an interesting entry point to study the dynamics underlying the rapid urbanization of Kabul and the key role the educated young generation play in the reconstruction of the country.
