Afghanistan/NATO. Fall of Kabul: Inconvenient Truths for NATO (CSIS)

Rachel Ellehuus e Pierre Morcos

Since 2001, the United States and its NATO allies and partners had been heavily committed in Afghanistan, where more than 3,500 of their soldiers paid the ultimate sacrifice. It is therefore not surprising that the rapid fall of Kabul sent shockwaves across Europe and stirred an intense debate among European leaders about its implications for the transatlantic partnership.

Afghanistan/China/USA – China’s Involvement in Afghanistan: A Conversation with Laurel Miller (CSIS)

Bonny Lin

On this episode of the ChinaPower Podcast, Laurel Miller joins us to discuss the deteriorating situation in Afghanistan and to assess China’s next steps in the region. Ms. Miller argues that China will continue to be cautiously involved with Afghanistan to fulfill its long-term vision of establishing peace and stability in the nearby region. She also estimates how China may use its influence in Pakistan to boost its political relations with the Taliban. Although Afghanistan was a bright spot for US-China cooperation in peace-process issues, Ms. Miller says that previous collaboration was exaggerated and that the brightness has been dimmed in recent years. Lastly, she weighs the likelihood of US-China cooperation on Afghanistan going forward.

Afghanistan/USA – The Taliban Takeover: Plan Now for the Next Crisis in Afghanistan (CSIS)

Anthony H. Cordesman

The U.S. already faces a crisis over managing its evacuation from Afghanistan, over how to treat Afghans that aided the U.S. in the war, and over which refugees it should allow to enter the United States. This crisis, however, is only the prelude to a far more serious crisis: How will the Taliban govern and what can be done to protect the nearly 38 to 40 million people that will now remain in Afghanistan under the Taliban’s rule.

Afghanistan/USA – The Case for Expediting Special Immigrant Visas amid a Transition of Power in Afghanistan (CSIS)

Daniel F. Runde, Elena Mendez Leal

Following nearly 20 years of war in Afghanistan with a cost of more than $2 trillion and 241,000 lives lost, the United States fully committed to a military withdrawal. As a result, the ground situation in Afghanistan has become increasingly uncertain and unstable with significant damage to critical infrastructure (e.g., power grids) and heavy civilian casualties.

Afghanistan – The Reasons for the Collapse of Afghan Forces (CSIS)

Anthony H. Cordesman

The sudden collapse of the Afghan central government and the Afghan National Defense and Security Forces (ANDSF) has occurred with stunning speed. It has clearly been driven by the fact that both President Trump and President Biden not only announced deadlines for the withdrawal of U.S. military support, but they then cut that support to levels where Afghan forces could not survive and where many Afghan politicians and government figures were willing to stand aside or surrender.

TechInnovation/New Commercial Space Revolution – Remote Sensing and Sensibility (CSIS)

Kaitlyn Johnson, Lindsay R. Sheppard write for CSIS: The third episode of Tech Unmanned focuses on a new commercial space revolution in remote sensing and earth observation satellites. Previously solely the domain of the intelligence community and military, remote sensing has exploded in the private sector through different types of sensors and data, as well as the applications of the data collected. Kaitlyn and Lindsey talk with Kari Bingen, Chief Strategy Officer at Hawkeye360, and Dr. Mariel Borowitz, Associate Professor in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs at Georgia Tech, about this technological revolution and its impact on national security.

Trans Pacific Partnership/USA – To TPP or Not to TPP: That Is the Question (CSIS)

William Alan Reinsch writes: The Biden-Harris administration continues to wrestle not only with the ghost of the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) but with its reincarnation in the form of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP). The TPP was not originally an American idea. It began with New Zealand and several other countries in the region during the George W. Bush administration. The United States was invited to join the negotiations, and the Obama administration eventually decided to do so, after far more agonizing than the decision deserved or needed.
