Afghanistan -A war torn country seeking a future.
After 35 years of war and violence, Afghanistan is looking for a road to a peaceful future. Many things have changed in the country in recent years - more children are in school, a free media has emerged, the infant mortality rate has decreased. However, some problems continue to pile up - deep ethnic divisions, weak central power and escalating violence against civilians makes the way forward highly uncertain.
Anna-Karin Johansson is the Secretary General of the Swedish Committee for Afghanistan (SAK) which has around 6,000 employees in Afghanistan working to strengthen the most vulnerable people in the country. SAK operates schools for more than 120,000 students, health care for more than 3.2 million patients and also works with rural development and the rehabilitation of people with disabilities.
The lecture will be followed by a thirty minute Q&A session, during which audience members will have the opportunity to ask questions.
Free for members, 20 SEK for everyone else. A one year membership can be purchased for 50 SEK before the lecture.
