The Norwegian government has invited the Director of PRIO, Kristian Berg Harpviken, to join a ten-member committee of experts, which will evaluate the Norwegian engagement in Afghanistan.
In preparation for the Oslo Symposium on Women's Rights and Empowerment in Afghanistan, which takes place on Sunday 23 November, PRIO has prepared two new background Papers. PRIO Director Kristian Berg Harpviken and Lida Nadery has co-authored a paper on Education and Empowerment. Timor Sharan and Torunn Wimpelmann has jointly written a paper on Women’s Rights and Political Representation. Both papers look at the achievements in the post-Taliban era, examine challenges in the current transition, and define key questions for discussion at the Oslo symposium.
