The objective of this consultation on the upcoming presidential and provincial elections in Afghanistan is to anticipate likely developments and to advance consensus around a concerted approach by the international community to the challenges arising from the elections.

Four presentations will be made by experts associated with Chatham House – on what to expect in the coming months and lessons learned from past elections; on current Afghan politics around the elections; on the Taliban, elections and their relevance to reconciliation; and on how the upcoming elections fit into Afghanistan’s evolving political economy.
