Topic MA Thesis: Failures of Post-Conflict Reconstruction in Afghanistan

Ahmad Rashid Jamal: This research analyzes the role of Police and Security Sector Reform in Afghanistan from 2001 to 2012. It intends to answer two questions: How do international and local actors contribute to the success or failure of the Security Sector and Police Reform? How do actors, leadership, and policies within a synchronized mission fail to build professional police?

This MA thesis will argue that a lack of shared vision among international actors and an absence of leadership and capacity in Afghanistan government are critical factors for the failures of post-conflict reconstruction.

This study develops process tracing and case study method of research. It explains donors' efforts within a synchronized mission to reform the security sector and police. The theory postulates that Security Sector and Police Reform are the initial steps towards success in post-conflict reconstruction. The theory of post-conflict reconstruction shows that coordination among donors and efficient leadership enhances post-conflict reconstruction efforts to reform security institutions and build professional police. The thesis examines this theory for Afghanistan after 9/11, using qualitative method, particularly process tracing and single case study techniques.

This study argues that Security Sector Reform (SSR), particularly policing, is not successful in Afghanistan. This research focuses on police reform and addresses the following research questions to demonstrate failures of SSR process: How do international and local actors donate to the success or failure of Afghanistan Security Sector and Police Reform? How do actors, leadership, and policies within a synchronized mission fail to build professional police?

Ahmad Rashid Jamal has submit the thesis "Failures of Post-Conflict Reconstruction in Afghanistan: Unprofessional Police and Unproductive Administration" in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the degree of  Master of Arts in Politics and Public Administration at the University of Konstanz.
