After Afghanistan: The Future of Democracy Support in Post-Conflict States

October 20, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm UTC-5


The Taliban takeover in Afghanistan and other recent setbacks for democracy from Haiti to DRC to Myanmar are reminders of the constantly shifting landscape of democracy support in conflict environments. As the field of international democracy assistance moves into an era of “relentless diplomacy” post-Afghanistan, what best practices can we identify to build and sustain democratic processes and institutions in conflict-prone countries? How can we measure success in complex and volatile environments? How can greater inclusion, inclusion measures such as the Women, Peace and Security Agenda, help us achieve sustainable, peaceful democracy?
