In this new AAN report, released on 5 May 2011, Antonio Giustozzi and Christoph Reuter turn their sights on the Afghan North again. They describe the rise of the Taleban in the seven northern provinces, discuss their recruitment and shadow administration, and explore the effects of the conduct of the Afghan government and of ISAF’s ‘capture-and-kill campaign’. They demonstrate how these developments together contribute to a very unstable status quo.
Date of publication: 5 May 2011. The report was produced in the course of 2010 and reflects the situation in the Greater North as of the end of autumn 2010.
