Time to Get Afghanistan Right
By Hekmat Karzai and Hydar Akbar
After seven and a half years of international engagement, Afghanistan is at a very important turns a daunting set of challenges: a ruthless insurgency, comprised of militant groups with different capabilities and objectives; the government still struggles with corruption and delivery of basic services; the country produces 90% of the world’s heroin, with the volatile province of Helmand producing half of the crop; and regional players are still involved and trying their utmost to influence Afghanistan’s future.
