Please be welcome to a public debate about Norway's efforts in Afghanistan, a week after the Godal commission's report is handed over to the Foreign Secretary and the Secretary of Defence.

The Godal commission's report is an assessment of Norway's military and civil engagements in Afghanistan from 2001 to 2014. What did we learn? What did it mean for Afghanistan? And what does policy-makers have to consider the next time Norway is asked to contribute in international operations?
