Comments Off on Afghanistan’s Future after US-NATO Intervention: Un-kept Promises

ACKU hosted a public lecture by Professor Nazif Shahrani, Indiana University on “Afghanistan’s Future after US-NATO Intervention: Un-kept Promises”. In the beginning, Professor Shahrani talked about the different types of empires in the world—empires of faith, empires of commerce, empires of conquest and empire of trust—and pointed out the new colonialism as the “Empire of Trust” in which the superpowers seek their own interest before the other countries.

He mentioned that in the current situation, development of a country is based on nation’s active involvement in politics and economy; the more the people are involved in political and economic decision making, the more the country gets developed. However, building a centralized governments reduce chances for development.

Professor Shahrani described that Afghanistan’s Constitutional Law focuses more on centralized state which reduces the nation’s involvement in politics and economy while at the moment, Afghanistan is in need of a move from centralized to an open and decentralized state so that people can have active participation in the country’s development.
