SOAS Afghan Society aims to promote Afghanistan and Afghan culture, through hosting political and cultural events as well as film screenings and music evenings. Through setting up the society we hope to inform people about an alternative Afghanistan that is rarely discussed in the mainstream media, whilst at the same time hosting events on the various issues plaguing Afghanistan. We aim to build networks with other student Afghan societies in order to extend the reach of our society. We also hope to collaborate with academics and researchers on Afghanistan to help explore the country in greater depth. The society is open to all with an interest in Afghanistan.
