Panel- Gender, Nation-building, and Politics in Afghanistan: the Last Two Decades

After the fall of the Taliban in 2001, political stakeholders in Afghanistan went to work to write a constitution and lay the foundation of a new, democratic political system. A significant focus of this nation-building effort was to provide representation and rights to women. Our speakers will discuss these processes, the outcomes of these efforts and the likely future prospects for women and politics in Afghanistan.
