Afghanistan, Taliban, and Migration

 

Thursday, 07 October 2021

14:00- 15:30, CET (Warsaw)

Venue: Online via Zoom

Language: English

 

The abrupt fall of the Afghan government and the takeover of Kabul by the Taliban have worsened the fragile economic situation and caused a grave humanitarian crisis in the country. It also increases the concerns about possible mass migration from the country. What does the situation in Afghanistan under Taliban rule look like and what are the prospects for the country’s future? Will human rights violations and poverty push many more Afghans to seek safety abroad, leading to a new refugee-management crisis? What can the international community, and European Union in particular, do to prepare and prevent a worst-case scenario?
