A study of the Norwegian-led PRT in Meymaneh, Afghanistan, and it's contribution to security.
Today, Norway contributes to the ongoing international operation in Afghanistan, in order to fight insurgency and to reconstruct and contribute to development for the Afghan population by building a democratic state built on the principles of human rights and the rule of law. However, the political and strategic rationale for Norway to be present in Afghanistan must also be seen in light of our engagements as a NATO allie and as a means in order to protect our selves and western allies from happenings such as the September 11, 2001 ever happening again. This assignment will therefore focus on the conflict in Afghanistan and how civil-military cooperation, through the use of Provincial Reconstruction Teams (PRTs), and then especially the Norwegian led PRT in Meymaneh, Faryab province, has become an important part of the security dimension. Analytical tools used in this thesis, will be the state security concept, with a widening and a deepening of the security concept moving towards societal and human security. Here, the use of human security will be of most focus when analyzing the PRT Meymanhes contribution to security.
