The fall of Kabul signifies a new power dynamic in Afghanistan and the region. It has the potential to reverse two decades of progress in areas such as human and women’s rights, education, and development. Amid an increasing humanitarian and refugee crisis, the events of the past week and years might open opportunities for U.S. adversaries to take advantage of diminishing U.S. influence and capacity to react to developing crises in the region. What are immediate next steps that the U.S. should take in Afghanistan? And what actions need to be taken elsewhere to compartmentalize Afghanistan and signal U.S. resolve? Please join us for a timely discussion with several career experts on Afghanistan.
