Middle East – New Perspectives

Camden County College is excited to host their lecture series “Middle East – New Perspectives” at 6:30 PM on Wednesdays in Civic Hall.

Week  5: Afghanistan’s Modern History and Why It Matters, presented by Faiz Ahmed

August 2019 marks the 100th anniversary of Afghanistan’s independence from Britain. In this talk Professor Faiz Ahmed unearths a lost history behind Afghanistan’s first constitution in the early 20th century and its founding as a modern nation-state amid empires, the subject of his recently published book Afghanistan Rising. As US policymakers continue to debate the future of American involvement in this pivotal country, the lecture will focus on what lessons we can learn from rediscovering Afghanistan’s own legal and constitutional history from Afghan and other perspectives in the region.
