Abstract: This issue of Futuribili explores the complexity of the situation in Afghanistan and highlights, alongside the macro-problems of global and local powers’ policies,  the problems and difficulties in transforming and modernizing the civil society of the many Afghanistans that exist in Afghanistan. The contributions are divided into three parts. The first set concerns the global and regional macro aspects: great powers’ strategies, new social actors, the oil business, the new leaders (G. Picco), the big game (M. Piacentini), the tribal border areas ( N. Gasparini), the relationship with the central Asian countries (I. Damiani) and the Lebanese model (M. Lussi). The second set deals with the civil society, everyday life and communication, with a close-up view of the Afghan people (N. Rinaldi), women’s health (G. Mezzabotta), women’s veil (A. Baghai), mass communications system (A. Romo), jirga and informal justice (A.L. Palmisano), Afghan constitution (D. Coccopalmerio). The third set deals with the future, which may arise from the crisis of the civil society option in the Afghan swamp (E. Giordana).
