Afghanistan: Security, Gender, and Development 2001-2021  (Conferences / Seminars / Lectures)

Presenter: Jennifer L. Fluri is Professor and Chair of the Department of Geography at the University of Colorado-Boulder.

This overview includes a critical examination of the challenges, opportunities, and failures of these interventions, and the limited opportunities for women in Taliban controlled contemporary Afghanistan.
