2017 Annual Lecture

The American Institute of Afghanistan Studies launched the inaugural Annual Lecture on Afghanistan in April of 2017. One of the few female combat journalists to cover Afghanistan and Pakistan, Christina Lamb spoke about the human costs of political failure in America’s longest war in her presentation titled, “From Afghanistan to a More Dangerous World.” She draws on her experience as the Chief Foreign Correspondent for the UK Sunday Times and a best-selling author, to depict the impacts of war on Afghanistan’s people and society.
