After 17 years and $132 billion appropriated for reconstruction, the United States finds itself at an inflection point in Afghanistan. Afghan security forces are locked in a stalemate with the Taliban on the battlefield, ISIS-K remains a persistent threat, and corruption continues to threaten to fatally undermine the Afghan state. In the midst of this, the United States is currently engaged in negotiations with the Taliban about a possible end to the conflict.  

Join us at CSIS on Thursday, March 28th at 10am as Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction (SIGAR), John F. Sopko, unveils SIGAR's latest high-risk list for Congress. The High-Risk List will call attention to the greatest threats facing U.S. reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan, including those that may arise if a peace agreement is reached. Mr. Sopko will then join Dr. Anthony H. Cordesman and Dr. Seth G. Jones for a discussion of the report's findings.

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
