Progress undone: Rory Stewart on what went wrong in Afghanistan

A former diplomat, British cabinet secretary, and member of Parliament, Rory Stewart is a senior fellow at Yale’s Jackson Institute for Global Affairs. In that role, he has helped established the Yale Development Dialogues, a discussion series jointly presented by the Jackson Institute, the Department of History, and Yale’s Economic Growth Center that applies lessons from history and economics to policy problems in developing countries. 

He recently participated in a Development Dialogues panel discussion on the humanitarian challenges facing Afghanistan in the wake of the U.S. withdrawal. Stewart shared his perspective on the situation in Afghanistan in an interview with Yale News.
