Afghanistan - friendship, or just strategic interest?
Moving beyond the questions of what went wrong in Afghanistan, it is of great importance to identify the lessons we can draw to prevent a similar humanitarian crisis in the future. Summia Tora will be a voice of the people in Afghanistan, share her perspective and raise awareness of the current happenings in Afghanistan. This panel intends to investigate the future of U.S./ German relations resulting from Afghanistan’s current situation, and more generally, the consequences for international cooperation.
Summia Tora, Markus Potzel, Prof Erik Jensen, Prof Nathalie Tocci, and Steven Sokol will discuss ways to support the people of Afghanistan in the struggles around human rights, governance, safety, and livelihoods ahead of them and focus on what the retreat from Afghanistan means for future involvement of the west in other countries.
