Recorded on Wednesday, June 5, this conversation among panelists in Kabul, Washington, D.C., and Philadelphia was the latest in a series exploring key issues for Afghans. Please join the Wage Peace email list to hear about future events.

Background

A strategic partnership is right now being negotiated between the governments of Afghanistan and the United States. At stake will be the number and type of U.S. forces after 2014, whether those forces will have immunity from Afghan law, what type of access they have to bases in the country, and the focus of financial assistance the U.S. will provide in the future.

These are fundamental questions for Afghans, and will dramatically affect their future and their country’s stability and development.

Because the U.S. involvement is overwhelmingly military, we rarely hear about the goals of Afghan civil society and the type of relationship they would like to see with the U.S.
