Afghanistan, Interrupted (Again)

Tamim Ansary, Author, “Games Without Rules: The Often Interrupted History of Afghanistan”

15-Oct-21 08:00

Brought to you by

Afghanistan, Interrupted (Again)

The withdrawal of US troops from Afghanistan and the return of the Taliban to government in August closed the chapter on the 20 year war sparked by the 9/11 terrorist attacks. What lessons can be gained from the US' failed nation-building mission in Afghanistan, and how has the war affected Western-Muslim engagement? We discuss these themes with Afghan-American writer and author Tamim Ansary.

Tamim was a speaker at the Khazanah Megatrends Forum 2021 this month.
