    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


    Kabul University was the first institution to undergo rapid politicisation during the Constitutional Decade (1964-73) of Afghanistan. The article explores how this educational institution, in a country with a very high rate of illiteracy, which also did not have a long tradition of modern education, soon transformed into a political hotbed which led to the emergence of Kabul University as the centre of Afghanistan s political struggles in the 1960s and early 1970s.
