As part of Columbia University's Fall 2023 Development Colloquium, Ricardo Pommer Munoz and Luigi Caloi will present.
A conversation with President Santiago Peña Palacios MPA-EPM ’03, President of the Republic of Paraguay.
In the two years since the fall of the republic in Afghanistan and victory of the Taliban, the Taliban has consolidated its power and increased its control over the political, economic and social aspects of life in the country. A visible challenge of the current relationship of the Taliban with the international community is that they lack an understanding of their capacity to influence and persuade the other side to concede from its stance, and both sides are waiting to see the other side retreat from its position. This panel discussion will explore the decision and policy making environment of the Taliban, and mechanisms of influencing this environment that will encourage positive policy steps by the Taliban for the rights of women, children, and minorities.
