University of Bremen: Lecture on the failed Afghan peace process

For many years, NATO countries endeavored to end the Western military operation in Afghanistan and to bring about a peaceful reconciliation between the Kabul government and the opposition Taliban. How the Afghan peace process was shaped by the actors involved and how the conflicting positions were mediated is the focus of the lecture by Hans-Joachim Gießmann, who, as a representative of the Berghof Foundation (Berlin), was partly involved in the mediation attempts in Doha (Qatar). was there and was able to gain a good insight into the dynamics of peace negotiations. Why these negotiations ultimately failed is just as critical as the question of how to deal with the new rulers after the withdrawal of NATO and the return of the Taliban in Afghanistan.
