Event Details

Afghanistan made headlines in August, with news outlets focused on the geopolitical narrative surrounding the Taliban's return to power. Beyond the headlines, the people of Afghanistan are faced with a harsh reality. Some were fortunate enough to be evacuated and begin a new life in a foreign country, but that of course comes with its own challenges. Others were forced or chose to remain in their home country and now face the reality of living under Taliban rule. Whether they have left or remain, the challenges they encounter will not fade with the next news cycle. Asia Society Hong Kong is partnering with J.P. Morgan to present the latest insights into life in Afghanistan from the perspective of a women's rights activist and an Afghan soldier who fought on the frontline and managed to escape to Britain with his young family.

  • Mahbouba Seraj, Head of the Afghan Women's Network
