What happens next in Afghanistan and what should Norway do?

The Afghanistan Committee, Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), Chr. Michelsen Institute (CMI) and Nansen Center for Peace and Dialogue invite you to this event.

We ask two prominent Afghan female leaders to share their reflections on the dramatic recent events in Afghanistan, and what the future might hold for its population. 

​Could a full Taliban takeover have been avoided?

What can we expect from the Taliban in terms of inclusion of other leaders, women and minorities?

What should be the core elements of Norway's Afghanistan policy from now on?

The event will be streamed on Youtube. Find it here
