About the Event

The Future of Resistance in Afghanistan:

A Conversation with Ali Nazary, Head of Foreign Relations for the National Resistance Front of Afghanistan

Join FPRI at the William and Mary Washington Center for a special conversation with Ali Nazary, Head of Foreign Relations for the National Resistance Front of Afghanistan, moderated by FPRI Senior Fellow, Phil Wasielewski, and FPRI Director of Research, James Ryan. In the year since the US military departure from Afghanistan and the unexpectedly swift takeover by the Taliban, the National Resistance Front of Afghanistan, centered in Panjshir province and led by Ahmad Massoud, has shouldered the burden of resistance to Taliban rule in the country. Our conversation will address the aims, strategy, and politics of resistance in a perilous time for the people of Afghanistan.

This event will be held in person, at the William & Mary Washington Center, located at 901 4th St. N.W., Suite 700, Washington, D.C. 20001, and virtually, via Zoom.

The Zoom event will begin at 5:30 PM.
