Conference Summary

Project: Afghanistan: Opportunity in Crisis

Chatham House and BAAG

In November 2013, Chatham House and BAAG (British and Irish Agencies Afghanistan Group) convened a panel of experts on Afghanistan to consider various scenarios the country may face in 2014 and beyond. Topics included the presidential election process, improving governance, and the role of civil society. Overall, the panel felt a middle ground, cautiously optimistic scenario was most likely, and discussions indicated the increasingly loud voice of a nation who are demanding progress from their government.
