Abstract

The procedure of the decision seminar was developed by Harold D. Lasswell as a technique for instruction, policy clarification and decision-making. It is a flexible procedure which permits seminar participants to identify, gain insight into, and propose strategies for addressing problems of mutual concern. A decision seminar focused on the postwar governance of Afghanistan was conducted in Peshawar, Pakistan, in June 1990. The initiation, design, application, and appraisal of this seminar is presented in some detail in order to demonstrate how this kind of program can be employed to clarify the frame of reference, impact, and policy preferences of all participants. In conclusion, brief reference is made to potential uses of this type of seminar in other contexts around the planet.
