Event description

Description

The first Sussex Afghanistan Forum will take place on 13th March 2018 at the University of Sussex, hosted by the Sussex Asia Centre and the Afghanistan Institute of Strategic Studies.

It will be a day of presentations and discussion followed by a reception.

Initiated the University of Sussex Asia Centre (USAC) and the Afghanistan Institute for Strategic Studies (AISS), in 2018, Sussex Afghanistan Forum (SAF) will hold an inaugural an event to discuss the pressing issues confronting Afghanistan’s development, both domestically and internationally, and areas of mutual interest between Afghanistan and the UK. The event also represents the ambition of USAC and AISS to strengthen their research excellence and outreach. It is hoped that SAF will consolidate into a major platform at which Afghanistan’s leaders from governmental and non-governmental sectors can identify areas for research and Afghanistan’s policies in those areas, and where UK-based academics can communicate their research findings or analytical insights to relevant institutions in Afghanistan, building the prospect of future collaborations.

Aiming to promote dialogues between Afghan government strategists and scholars and Western academics, the forum will be held on March 13th 2019. There will be keynote presentations from specially invited Afghan leaders followed by panels dealing with the issues surrounding the keynotes.

The panels will focus on the following themes:

(1) Afghanistan – UK relations;

(2) Commerce, The Environment and Regional Connectivity;

(3) The Peace Process in Afghanistan and its wider international context;

(4) Research Afghanistan: Problems and Prospects
