The recent US troop withdrawal from Afghanistan marks the end of ‘America’s longest war,’ raising new questions about the future of human rights in Afghanistan and the future of global and regional security more widely. It has also intensified scrutiny on the US-led Global War on Terror, military intervention, and democracy promotion – as well as the human costs incurred by such activities. In the face of a disordered withdrawal and incomplete evacuation, marked by the collapse of the US-supported Afghan government and reassertion of Taliban rule, we are joined by faculty, alumni, and students for a roundtable discussion on the short-term effects and long-term consequences of the American-led effort in Afghanistan, the developments that brought us to this point, and where we go from here.

This event is presented by the War and Peace Studies program, as part of the ‘The World Now’ Series in the Center for International Studies. The World Now series explores current events around the world by way of conversations led by OHIO faculty, students, alumni, community members, and guest speakers. It reflects CIS’s ongoing commitment to global engagement and dialogue.
