Afghanistanuka 2020

Like etter at det amerikanske presidentvalget er avgjort, og bare dager før høynivåkonferansen om Afghanistan i Genève, vil Afghanistanuka 2020 strømmes direkte fra Oslo på YouTube.

Vi er glade for å invitere deg til en uke med informative digitale debatter om noen av de viktigste spørsmålene Afghanistan står overfor, inkludert:

  • Hva skjer bak lukkede dører i Doha, der representanter for Taliban og den afghanske regjeringen samles for å forhandle om slutten på mer enn 40 år med krig?
  • Vil Afghanistans mektige krigsherrer støtte, sabotere eller overta et forhandlet forlik?
  • Hvordan kan Taliban forsøke å islamisere Afghanistans grunnlov og juridiske rammeverk, og hva ville være konsekvensene for kvinner og menneskerettigheter?
  • Hvor mye plass vil bli igjen for ytringsfrihet og politisk aktivisme i Afghanistan?
  • Kan det bli langvarig fred uten en bredere involvering av den afghanske befolkningen?

Bli med oss direkte på YouTube fra 16. til 19. november, hvor vi samler politikere, journalister, akademikere og aktivister fra Afghanistan, Norge og andre steder for å diskutere viktige spørsmål som landet står overfor, inkludert Mujib Mashal, seniorkorrespondent for New York Times i Afghanistan, og Jamila Afghani, leder av Women’s International League for Peace and Freedom i Afghanistan.

Det vil være en spørsmålsrunde umiddelbart etter hvert seminar, og alle oppfordres til å delta i diskusjonen.
