Abstract "This report assesses the interests of the most relevant state and non-state actors in Afghanistan and Central Asia in the aftermath of the 2014 Afghan presidential election. It is guided by the premise that the armed conflict in Afghanistan should be understood as being heavily intertwined with regional politics. Its purpose is to serve as an overview of the negotiation environment in Afghanistan and Central Asia. It identifies actors, interests, and relationships that are helpful to take into consideration when sequencing and orchestrating a peace process that could de-escalate the war in Afghanistan and help build a more stable and cooperative region. The majority of the PRIF Report focuses on relevant actors and their network of relationships, and the conclusion details three future scenarios and a set of recommendations that could facilitate a coordinated negotiation process." (author's abstract)

"Nach den Präsidentschaftswahlen 2014 in Afghanistan, betrachtet dieser Report die Interessen der wichtigsten Akteure in Afghanistan und Zentral-Asien. Er weist daraufhin, dass die bewaffneten Konflikte in Afghanistan stark mit der regionalen Politik verflochten sind und bietet einen Gesamtüberblick über die möglichen Verhandlungsräume in Afghanistan und Zentral-Asien. Im Sinne einer stabileren und kooperativeren Region arbeitet der Report Akteure, Interessen und Beziehungen heraus, die zu einem Friedens-Prozess beitragen könnten. Der PRIF Report weist in seinem Fazit drei mögliche Zukunftsszenarien auf und spricht Handlungsempfehlungen aus, um einen koordinierten Verhandlungsprozess zur Deeskalation des Krieges voranzutreiben."
