Afghanistan at a Crossroads

Prague Municipal Library, Mariánské nám. 1, Prague 1

Guest: Tomáš Kocian, Fatima Rahimi, Otakar Foltýn

Afghanistan has undergone major changes between the US invasion in 2001 and the dramatic events of September 2021, when the Taliban regained full power over the country. Although the standard of living has increased, complete security has not been achieved. How do experts evaluate the past two decades in Afghanistan? What changes were brought on by the activities of humanitarian and development organisations such as People in Need? What is the current situation in the country and what are its prospects for the future? The discussion guests include the regional director of People in Need for the Middle East, Tomáš Kocian, a journalist for the Referendum Daily Fatima Rahimi and Lt. Col. Otakar Foltýn, who was deployed in Afghanistan.
