Afghanistan, The Neo Taliban and the North
As reports are beginning to surface that the Taliban are stepping up activities in northern Afghanistan, PRIO has the pleasure of inviting you to a seminar with Antonio Giustozzi to discuss the ‘Neo-Taliban and the North’.

In his talk, Giustozzi will address the role of different communities, local strongmen and other components of society, and he will examine the potential of Afghan governance and security structures in preventing the Taliban’s reemergence in the North.

This meeting is the third in a series of seminars on Afghanistan organized jointly by PRIO and CMI (Chr. Michelsen Institute).

The seminar will be chaired Kaja Borchgrevink, PRIO, with Kristian Berg Harpviken as a discussant.
