School of International Affairs Lecture Series

116 Katz

Fawad Sultani, Penn State alumnus and current Program Implementation Coordinator for the Swedish Committee for Afghanistan

This discussion will focus on nation building in general, and Afghanistan in particular, with a focus on contemporary Afghan politics.  The main emphasis of the discussions will be: the Afghan Unity government (marked by power-sharing between the President and a Chief Executive Officer); the withdrawal of US and international troops and its consequences for Afghanistan (whether the Afghan National Army and Police can take over); and the new government’s policy on peace talks with the Taliban.

This lecture, sponsored by the School of International Affairs and the Center for Global Studies, is free and open to the public.
