Afghanistanuka 2020

Årets Afghanistanuke har dessverre blitt utsatt på grunn av koronaviruset.
Så snart situasjonen stabiliserer seg vil vi prøve å finne en passende dato senere i år.

Bli med når vi inviterer til en uke med debatter, seminarer og kulturelle arrangementer, alle med Afghanistan og norsk Afghanistan-politikk i søkelyset.
