Afghanistan-uka 2016 går av stabelen mellom 20. og 25. september. Uka er et samarbeid mellom Afghanistankomiteen, Chr. Michelsens institutt (CMI) og Institutt for fredsforskning (PRIO). I tillegg bidrar en lang rekke andre organisasjoner til et stort og variert program. Sentrale afghanske og internasjonale forskere og aktører kommer til Norge for å stå bak talerstolen og delta i debatter. Kultur og brobygging står også på programmet.
Målet med Afghanistan-uka er å plassere Afghanistan øverst på den norske dagsorden. Afghanistankomiteen er initiativtaker og koordinator for uka som blir gjennomført med støtte fra Fritt Ord og Norad.
