18 May 2011: Cul-de-sac Afghanistan? Panel discussion in Frankfurt

AAN admin < 1 min

While the European public is mainly concerned about the growing number of killed ISAF soldiers in Afghanistan and the debate is dominated by the troop withdrawal question – what about the people who ISAF was supposed to protect and defend?

What would it mean if security responsibility is transferred to a government that is notorious for its corruption and inefficiency? Can development work only be done under ISAF protection, or would a troop withdrawal enable meaningful and effective development work again? These questions and others will be addressed at a panel discussion on 18 May in Frankfurt/Main with AAN participation, organised by Heinrich Boell Foundation (HBS).
