These are currently critical issues, as we are moving towards a ‘drawdown’ of the international presence in Afghanistan, and may be moving towards some political process or the other.

In this seminar Sima Samar (head of the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission) will present her thoughts on these topical issues.


Comments and debate, involving Jan Egeland (Director of NUPI and upcoming Director of Human Rights Watch, Europe) and Herdis Sigurdgrimsdottir (PRIO)


The seminar will be chaired by Ida Dommersnes, PRIO.
