About Afghan Peace Watch

Afghan Peace Watch (APW) is a US-registered 501(c)3 dedicated to independent reporting and analysis on peace and security in Afghanistan. The organization was previously registered under the Ministry of Economy in Afghanistan in 2020. APW maintains an extensive network of journalists and civil society activists on the ground and monitors over 200 social media accounts daily in all regional languages. Incidents are verified and added to APW’s bespoke database to track violent trends in Afghanistan. APW draws on a wide range of expertise within Afghanistan and the diaspora to support public discourse on Afghanistan and empower those living under Taliban rule.

Work With us

APW has undertaken collaborations with organizations like ACLED and the Small Arms Survey to improve access to information on the ground. Increasingly, foreign reporters and researchers are limited in their access to information and Afghan media outlets subject to self-censorship. APW seeks to address these gaps by collaborating with organizations to support data collection and verification. Reach out if you would like to work with us!
