The images that have been circulating around the world from Kabul in recent weeks mark a turning point reminiscent of the end of the Vietnam War in 1975. Following decisions by the Trump and Biden administrations, the NATO mission in Afghanistan ended in June, and the Taliban took control of the country in mid-August. How is Afghanistan likely to develop in the future and what are the prospects for communication between the European Union and the Taliban in the coming decades? What danger can be posed by Islamist terrorist cells based in Afghanistan – in the country itself and worldwide?
The Pakistani journalist Ahmed Rashid will be in conversation with Peter Neumann, Director of the International Centre for the Study of Radicalisation (ICSR).
