Acknowledging the urgency of the situation in Afghanistan, the United States may double its forces to Afghanistan over the coming year, and President-elect Obama has pledged to revise America’s approach to development assistance and diplomacy in the region. How might these changes affect the international mission and the prospects for peace and stability in Afghanistan? What will be the impact on Canada’s mission in Kandahar?
Professor Paris, University Research Chair in International Security and Governance at the University of Ottawa, visited Afghanistan in December. In this talk, he will discuss the prospects and perils of the upcoming year.
This event is part of CIPS programming on Afghanistan.
