(p.231) 14 Perspectives of Local Violence
Local Politics in Afghanistan

Arne Strand

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the impact of violent conflicts on the local level. It shows that most acts of violence relate to local issues and are completely detached from the ‘War on Terror’ and the ‘(counter-)insurgency’. Most of the conflicts revolve around land and water rights. In other words, violence is mainly driven by the daily struggle for the survival of the people.

Keywords:   violence, water rights, War on Terror
