Jawed Sarwary – Vice President

My first job was in 2003 with United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR) helping millions of Afghan refugees repatriating back to Afghanistan from neighbouring countries. In 2004, I joined the United Nations Development Program (UNDP)’s Disarmament, Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) program that successfully conducted the disarmament of 93,000 ex-army personnel and disbandment of local militia and reintegrating them into civilian life. In 2007, I decided to pursue my higher education and enrolled in bachelor’s degree in political sciences majoring in International Relations. I continued to work for U.S. Embassy and USAID from 2007 to 2010. I then joined the European Union Police mission in Afghanistan (EUPOL) in 2011. I am a member of the Afghan Young Leaders Forum as well as founding member of the Centre for Democracy and Development Studies.
