Krister Bringéus: Afghanistan, the Fight Goes on

Ambassador Krister Bringéus

Afghanistan through the eyes of a Swedish diplomat – not through an American soldier’s gunsight. A look at the life in Afghanistan, where Taliban influence is rapidly spreading; at the role of women in a culture that, in the 10th century, gave the world Rabia Balkhi, the first woman known to compose poetry in both Arabic and Persian; at the heavy opium addiction, where children are introduced to the drug by their parents.

So how do international agreements and the rules of law play out in such a complicated situation.

This talk is part of the Human Rights in Serious Games course for 2011. It’s free and open to the public!

Time: Friday, September 30th, 14:00-15:00
