Between Neutrality and Solidarity: Swiss Good Offices in Afghanistan 1979-1992
Coming Thursday, March 3rd, Dr. Liliane Stadler will be our guest for this month’s panel. She will be sharing her latest book: Between Neutrality and Solidarity: Swiss Good Offices in Afghanistan from 1979 to 1992
Everyone is welcome to attend this meeting. There is no registration required!
The panel is scheduled to have an approximately half hour long presentation by Dr. Liliane Stadler, followed by an hour long window for an interactive and lively discussion between her and the attendees.
The book, which is published by the University of Oxford, examines the role of the Swiss government in the Afghan crisis between 1979 and 1992. Specifically, it answers the question how Swiss foreign policy towards Afghanistan evolved between 1979 and 1992, and reveals fundamental inconsistencies in the long-standing relationship between Swiss good offices and Swiss neutrality.
Dr. Liliane Stadler has been kind enough to write a unique abstract for our members, specially designed for the CWRN panel. Please feel free to read through it if you are interested!
