The study is based on three main premises in its attempt to understand the Taliban movement’s political project; the first, the fact that Taliban’s entry into the world of politics was spontaneous after its control of power in Kabul and was not preceded by any academic theoretical study or political ideology from the Taliban leaders; the second, the fact that there was no significant change in the core of the movement’s project, which is to adhere to the independence and Islamic nature of Afghanistan, but Taliban has become more aware of regional and global political reality and has developed its performance and tools in dealing with it; and the third, is the fact that there was evident change in the movement’s policy with respect to the social and media aspects.
