Civil & Liberal Initiative For Peace

We Are Clip

Civil and Liberal Initiative for Peace (CLIP) is an Afghan vision for democratic peace building through an Afghan to Afghan free and democratic dialogue. CLIP was established in 2012 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan, and impartial organization to facilitate peace dialogue among different groups and communities, mobilize grassroots peace builders while maintaining a strong focus on socio-economic development, women empowerment, and access to justice. We at CLIP are committed to individual liberty, justice, and peace. We believe peace building and democracy building walk parallel paths. Afghanistan has just returned to the marketplace of ideas in the 21st century. Thanks to Afghanistan’s friends in the international community, Afghans are increasingly becoming aware of their rights and responsibilities as citizens of a democratic nation. CLIP has been supporting a vision of democracy and peace shared by a majority of elite and educated Afghans. Afghanistan is a young democratic nation going through the experience and shocks of any young democracy with her own unique challenges.


We pursue our mission of peace and democracy building through grassroots awareness, networking, and advocacy, and research and development. As an influential Civil Society member, the organization maintains large networks of advocates for peace in the communities through equal opportunities for access to information. CLIP adheres to these values: mutual respect, integrity, excellence, transparency, commitment, empowerment, and partnership.
