Brussels, 07/12/2012

CIDOB will launch its new publication and website “Mapping Sources of Tension & the Interests of Regional Powers in Afghanistan & Pakistan” in Brussels, in conjunction with a debate co-hosted with Security & Defence Agenda, on possible scenarios in Afghanistan and Pakistan after the withdrawal of international troops in 2014. This event forms part of its policy research project “Sources of Tension in Afghanistan & Pakistan: A Regional Perspective”, which is supported by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and NOREF.

Topics for debate will include how outcomes in the region will be shaped by the interests and actions of concerned regional powers, and the role of external actors such as the EU, US and UN. The Panel will consist of Michael Semple, Carr Centre for Human Rights, Harvard University, former EU Deputy Special Representative to Afghanistan; Thomas Ruttig, Co-director and Co-founder of the Afghan Analysts Network; and Ambassador Ann Wilkens, former Ambassador of Sweden Ambassador to Pakistan (2003-2007) with accreditation to Afghanistan; member of the Advisory Board of the Afghan Analysts Network; president of the Swedish Committee for Afghanistan (2009-2011).
