On behalf of its NGO members, ACBAR would like to express our sincere condolences to the family and colleagues of Nancy Hatch Dupree.
Amongst many other achievements, Nancy and her husband Louis Dupree, set up and managed the ACBAR Information Resource Centre (ARIC) at ACBAR’s office in Peshawar in 1989 to collect documents and resources being produced by NGOs, civil society and media during the Russian occupation of Afghanistan. This resource centre is now the prestigious Afghanistan Centre at Kabul University (ACKU) which has documented the history of Afghanistan over the last 30 years.
Nancy will be sorely missed but her legacy of scholarship and passion for the culture and history of Afghanistan will remain to benefit us all through ACKU.
