Education in Afghanistan: How to Move Forward

Education in Afghanistan
10:00am-11:30am ET

Amid Afghanistan's significant humanitarian crisis, the Taliban continue to ban secondary education for girls in most provinces across the country. As the US and other governments contemplate if and how to engage with the Taliban to protect and support the 37m+ population, it is essential that they understand what Afghans themselves think of the Taliban’s edicts, particularly with regard to girls’ education. This panel will discuss how to support education for all Afghans in the context of the current social, political, and economic crisis.
