In the concluding chapter of my book, I answer my research question how can the peace initiatives in Afghanistan bring sustainable reconciliation by converging the main points of my research i.e. the unique geopolitical situation of Afghanistan and the lessons from the NRP for the current APRP or future reconciliation processes. I emphasize once again the importance of social healing to reach reconciliation in Afghanistan involving communities through a web approach. I believe that sustainable reconciliation in Afghanistan can be achieved when the process becomes people centric, multi-layered and in parallel to the national focus there is an effort to build consensus amongst competing regional and global powers. In addition, I briefly reflect at my own transformation while writing this book.
