It’s been a year since the U.S. withdrawal from Afghanistan, and the Taliban’s takeover of the country. Since then, the lives of many Afghans, especially women and girls, have been destroyed. Under Taliban rule, human rights violations continue to mount, while the country reaches economic collapse.
In this episode, Dean Amaney Jamal discusses the current situation in Afghanistan — and what hope remains ahead — with Amb. Adela Raz, director of the Afghanistan Policy Lab at the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs.
Amb. Raz was the first female permanent representative and ambassador of Afghanistan to the U.S. She’s also served as deputy minister for economic cooperation at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and as the first female deputy spokesperson and director of communications for President Hamid Karzai.
