Human Security and Agency: Reframing Productive Power in Afghanistan (Rowman & Littlefield) investigates how human security manifests itself in the context of Afghanistan and explores the factors that promote and impede its development. To that end, scholar and policy practitioner Nilofar Sakhi examines whether the development of productive power is an effective approach to human security implementation in a country that has experienced numerous development programs.
Dr. Sakhi is a Professorial Lecturer of International Affairs at the George Washington University Elliott School of International Affairs. She is also the Director of Policy and Diplomacy at McColm & Company. She holds a Ph.D from George Mason University.
The talk will be followed by a discussion with Associate Professor of History and International Affairs, Dr. Benjamin Hopkins, as well as a live Q&A with the audience.
