The year 2021 will be remembered for the political crisis in Afghanistan. The rapid collapse of the Afghan security forces and the Taliban’s seizure of power in Afghanistan is bound to have a wide range of strategic and geopolitical implications, both regionally and internationally.
The West’s perspective towards the ongoing Afghanistan crisis and the prospects of U.S & NATO allies in dealing with counter-terror operations is of immense significance. Regionally, the Pak -Taliban nexus and its impacts on regional security dynamics of South Asia is a major concern. As the world’s powerful armies make a retreat, the international community is dreading a reign of terror on Afghan soil.

CPPR endeavours to conduct a webinar series based on the ongoing stalemate in Afghanistan and intends to comprehend the changing dynamics associated with the Afghan political crisis and its prospects by engaging experts from the realm of academia, think tanks, and media.
