World Affairs Council of Western Michigan | The Afghanistan Withdrawal

September 27

The complexity of foreign affairs is on display as President Biden withdraws troops from Afghanistan after twenty years of war. What is the context for the rapid takeover of Afghanistan by the Taliban? What next steps can our military and diplomatic corps take to protect U.S. interests and global human rights? What lessons can we learn from the two decades in the country to make our foreign policy more effective in the future?

 Taking us on a deep dive into the region will be Adam Weinstein, a research fellow at the Quincy Institute and former Marine deployed to Afghanistan in 2012. He will provide a non-partisan assessment of the current situation as well as offer his perspective on the future of American foreign policy.  

Join us for this important conversation.
