Growing insurgency threatens Afghanistan internally while regional ambitions threaten to tear the nation apart from the outside. The post-Taliban democratic state faces existential strategic threats as a consequence. This collection of European Security Forum papers, prepared for the final Security Forum in Brussels in March of this year, brings together the views of three experts on what is needed to secure and consolidate peace in Afghanistan.

Radha Kumar is Director of the Nelson Mandela Centre for Peace & Conflict Resolution, Jamia Millia Islamia, New Delhi; Fabrice Pothier is Director of Carnegie Europe, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and Waliullah Rahmani is Director of the Centre for Strategic Studies, Kabul.
