On September 3 we hosted an India and the World webinar with Joshua T. White and Dawood Azami, that aimed to understand the leadership and structure of the Taliban. The discussion was moderated by Rudra Chaudhuri.
This special India and the World webinar was organised to discuss pressing questions about the current situation in Afghanistan. Such as will the Taliban control all of Afghanistan? Does the Taliban in Doha have any agency with those fighting hard on the ground in Afghanistan?
The Taliban’s rapid advance to control more territory in Afghanistan is raising alarms. Rudra Chaudhuri discusses the implications for bordering nations such as India. He was speaking with David Ingles & Yvonne Man on "Bloomberg Markets: Asia."
