Asia Democracy Network (ADN) and FORUM-ASIA have been closely monitoring the situation in Afghanistan since the takeover of the government by the Taliban regime. In just over two months, the twenty years of effort to democratize Afghanistan seems to have failed. Women, children, and vulnerable communities have been re-victimized by the Taliban.
The CSOs need to keep track of the situation and continue building awareness of the country’s ongoing dynamic. We also hope the panellists will be able to share some critical points on the humanitarian assistance that is urgently needed in Afghanistan at the moment and how can the international community provide further assistance.
The summary of this discussion will be shared and presented at the 2021 Asia Democracy Assembly scheduled on November 23-24, 2021. We hope to raise greater awareness of the issues in Afghanistan and bolster solidarity for the people of Afghanistan.
