What can international institutions do in the face of instability and uncertainty? And how can international Geneva collaborate with the Taliban without legitimizing their power?
The September edition of our Think & Drink afterwork deals with the role of International Geneva in Afghanistan. It’s been more than one year since the fall of Kabul and the Taliban ascending to power. Since then, the entire landscape has drastically changed and more than ever international institutions need to reassess their role in Afghanistan. International Geneva, as the host of a great number of international actors and international negotiations, could play an important role in stabilizing Afghanistan. The questions thus arise; What can these institutions do in the face of instability? And how can international Geneva collaborate with the Taliban without legitimizing their power?
