The Taliban have now controlled Afghanistan for over a year, and the relationships between the new rulers and its neighbours are taking shape.
The level of continuity in the relations between Afghanistan and its neighbours has been striking, as seen in the mounting tensions between the Taliban and its long-time supporter, Pakistan. Furthermore, global shifts – including Russia’s war of aggression in Ukraine and China’s steady rise – impacts both Afghanistan and the dynamics within its surrounding regions.
