For nearly twenty years the United States and allied forces maintained a substantial military, civic, and humanitarian presence in Afghanistan. However, with the withdrawal of forces looming, the world has watched in shock as the Taliban rapidly retook nearly the entire country within days, setting into motion a humanitarian and migration crisis of tremendous proportions. What are the circumstances that brought us to this point, and importantly, what comes next? Join the NCAFP as we host a high-level panel of former U.S. officials who have played leading roles in U.S. policy toward Afghanistan since 2001 as they answer as they address these questions and more.
