This chapter provides an overview of activist scholarship in the context of Afghanistan over the course of 20 years. It begins with an overview of Afghanistan’s geopolitical history, followed by the author’s research and engagement with research associates in the country. The chapter’s main focus rests with the failures of international intervention, and the challenges that occurred when the author, her collaborators, and volunteers attempted to help Afghan colleagues and friends to evacuate from the country after the resurgence of the Taliban and withdrawal of US military, aid, and development in August 2021. This includes the bureaucratic barriers, and massive financial and legal hurdles, many of which were impossible to surmount. The author further questions the effective role of research and researchers when they are unable to provide direct assistance due to geopolitical obstructions.
