Abstract
Afghanistan, a country of proud people who have experienced years of war now faces the challenge of rebuilding a nation after it has been devastated by continual conflicts. How much influence should the United States exert in helping rebuild Afghanistan? Based on historical evidence, does rebuilding a nation result in lasting peace for that nation? Is it possible to insure that reforms benefit the average citizen of Afghanistan? This case study will examine three aspects of rebuilding the country: the political environment; economic strategies such as tourism, the societal structure and new role of women.
