On February 29, the United States and the Taliban signed a preliminary peace deal aimed at ending nearly 19 years of war in Afghanistan. But the deal is mired in ambiguity and unanswered questions for Afghans, regional allies, and the United States. Who will enforce the peace deal or fill the vacuum if the United States dramatically diminishes its presence in Afghanistan? How will regional counter-terrorism efforts and foreign policy strategy in Afghanistan and the Middle East change? President’s Club members and above are invited to an exclusive off-the-record Zoom discussion with Robert Pape, professor of political science at the University of Chicago, and Cécile Shea, Chicago Council senior fellow on global security and diplomacy, as they discuss the Afghan peace deal’s ramifications on the region and the United States’ reputation.
