TEPSA coordinated the participation of Dr Mona Kanwal Sheikh (Danish Institute for International Studies) and Dr Arne Strand (Norwegian Centre for Humanitarian Studies ) in a European Parliament workshop on “Afghanistan – Challenges and perspectives until 2020”. The workshop was hosted by the European Parliament’s Committee on Foreign Affairs (AFET), the Committee on Development (DEVE) and the Delegation for relations with Afghanistan and took place on 17 November 2016 at the premises of the European Parliament in Brussels. Three thematic panels focused on the future political, security and development challenges and potential solutions that will mark the EU-Afghanistan relations up to 2020. A publication containing the workshop report as well as the experts’ briefings will soon be available on the TEPSA website.
