Afghanistan: Past, Present, and Future

Event Format

Over six months ago, the Taliban retook Afghanistan in a quick and strangely shocking turn of events. Despite being front page news for several weeks, Afghanistan has long since left the headlines. Join us as we discuss what transpired after the Taliban takeover and what it means for the people living in Afghanistan now. 

Participants at this event, which is intended for high school and community college educators, are asked to attend (or view the post-event recording of) the Davis Center seminar, Afghanistan After the Collapse: Where Are We Now, and What Comes Next? (which is scheduled for Tuesday, February 15, at 11 a.m. ET). At the March 9 event, Fara Abbas, a fellow with the Davis Center’s Negotiation Task Force and an expert in Afghan affairs, will answer community questions and help participants understand the social, political, and cultural ramifications of the change in Afghan leadership.
