An Armchair Discussion with Fawzia Koofi
Reflections on the current state of affairs in Afghanistan
Please join the CSIS Project on Prosperity and Development for a discussion with Fawzia Koofi, an Afghan parliamentary lawmaker, accomplished author, and internationally known outspoken advocate for the rights of women and children, democracy, and moderate Islam. Fawzia is the first female in the Afghan parliament to be elected as second deputy speaker, and heads the parliament’s Women Affairs Commission. This conversation will look at the current state of affairs in Afghanistan, particularly the rights of women and girls in the country and the potential path towards peace. This discussion is the third in a series of CSIS events reflecting on Afghanistan one year later.
This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
