President Obama’s recent announcement on Afghanistan has set a clear strategic direction for U.S. efforts in the region: pursue terrorist strongholds and build an indigenous Afghan security capacity. Obama’s strategy recognizes that the stabilisation of Afghanistan is inextricably linked to that of Pakistan. This places pressures on European governments, who are being asked to contribute to military and civilian surges while European popular support for the mission is waning.
Gilles Dorronsoro, Visiting Scholar at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace; Shada Islam, Senior Programme Executive at the European Policy Centre (EPC); and Daniel Korski, Senior Policy Fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations (ECFR), discussed how Europe can renew its commitments to Afghanistan. The event was chaired by Fabrice Pothier, Director of Carnegie Europe.
