Concept Note

2nd Sussex Afghanistan Forum (SAF-II)
18 March 2020-Sussex University, United Kingdom

The 2nd Sussex Afghanistan Forum (SAF) will be co-organized by Afghan Institute for Strategic Studies (AISS) & Sussex Asia Center on March 18, 2020 in the UK.

The meeting is a part of joint initiative between Afghan Institute for Strategic Studies (AISS) and University of Sussex Asia Centre (USAC). The SAF discusses the pressing issues confronting Afghanistan’s development, both domestically and internationally, as well as areas of mutual interest between Afghanistan and the UK.

It is hoped that SAF will consolidate into a major platform through which Afghanistan’s leaders from governmental and non-governmental sectors can identify areas for research and related Afghan policies and where UK-based academics can communicate their research findings or analytical insights to relevant institutions in Afghanistan, there by facilitating the prospect of future collaborations.

It aims to promote dialogue between Afghan government strategists and scholars and Western academics.
