Ethnic groups and political mobilization in Afghanistan [los grupos étnicos y la movilización política en Afganistán]

By Antonio Giustozzi


The article charts the rise of ethnic politics in Afghanistan from the 1930s, when the monarchy hoped that promoting Pashtun nationalism would strengthen its popular base, to the 1980s and 90s, when armed political factions increasingly resorted to ethnic propaganda to mobilize support, and finally to the post-2001 period, when electoral competition once again brought the issue of ethnic identity to the fore
