This study explores the complex link between geopolitical variables and Afghanistan's power as a nation, providing an important context for understanding Afghanistan's place in the world. The importance of national unity is shown by our findings since 96% of respondents agree that it is important. This highlights the Afghan people's historical fortitude in the face of outside pressures and internal strife.
The analysis highlights several other significant geopolitical factors in addition to national unity, such as leadership, Aryan culture, human resources, and geographic position. Together, these elements plus Afghanistan's historical, cultural, and physical background shape the country's might. Notably, despite their historical significance, religion, and natural resources were seen as having less of an impact, defying accepted beliefs about their influence. The study also emphasizes how Afghanistan's national power is dynamic, with new geopolitical components like "Aryan culture" and "quality of diplomacy" becoming significant players in the changing geopolitical environment. In conclusion, this study sheds light on the intricate web of geopolitical variables supporting Afghanistan's sovereignty. The cornerstones of the nation's strength are its unity and a variety of historical, cultural, and geographical elements. Comprehending these dynamics is imperative to apprehend Afghanistan's position in the international sphere and to formulate strategies that augment its stability and sway.
