With the Taliban now open to peace talks, a political end to the war in Afghanistan appears in sight. A number of Stanford scholars have been closely involved with the war - as diplomats, soldiers, analysts and educators. In this video they discuss lessons learned from America's second-longest war and talk about what's next for Afghanistan.
The Stanford Afghanistan Legal Education Project (ALEP) led by CDDRL faculty Erik Jensen recently traveled to Afghanistan. ALEP is a joint initiative between the Stanford Law School and CDDRL's Program on State Building and Rule of Law, dedicated to designing legal curricula and textbooks for the next generation of Afghan lawyers. This fact-finding mission to Kabul gave six student leaders the opportunity to meet with their Afghan counterparts at the American University of Afghanistan (AUAF). ALEP plans to introduce legal coursework at AUAF and translate textbooks into Dari and Pashto, to reach a broader audience of legal scholars.
