Mon, Oct 18, 2021 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM Eastern Daylight Time (UTC-4)
What will the next months and years hold for Afghanistan?
About this event
The chaotic US withdrawal from Afghanistan has had dramatic domestic, regional, and global ramifications. What will the next months and years hold for Afghanistan? What will the impact of Taliban rule be on Afghan communities internally and externally? What are the geopolitical implications of the return of the Taliban? How will Afghanistan’s neighbors respond to the developments there? Will the Taliban become a globally recognized legitimate state actor? Will “nation building” efforts by the West in the region take a different form? What role might the UN play in the unfolding scenarios?
Join us for a conversation with a distinguished panel that will consider these and other questions as we seek to explore potential pathways forward for Afghanistan and its citizens.
