Sussex Afghanistan Forum-I
1st Sussex Afghanistan Forum (SAF-I)
13 March 2019-Sussex University, United Kingdom
The first Sussex Afghanistan Forum (SAF) co-organized by Afghan Institute for Strategic Studies (AISS) and University of Sussex Asia Centre (USAC) held in the United Kingdom on March 13, 2019.
The meeting is a part of joint initiative between Afghan Institute for Strategic Studies (AISS) and University of Sussex Asia Centre (USAC). The SAF discusses the pressing issues confronting Afghanistan’s development, both domestically and internationally, as well as areas of mutual interest between Afghanistan and the UK.
It is hoped that SAF will consolidate into a major platform through which Afghanistan’s leaders from governmental and non-governmental sectors can identify areas for research and related Afghan policies and where UK-based academics can communicate their research findings or analytical insights to relevant institutions in Afghanistan, there by facilitating the prospect of future collaborations.
It aims to promote dialogue between Afghan government strategists and scholars and Western academics.
