Afghanistan: The Graveyard Of Empires

28 March 2017

King's College London, Afghan Welfare Society, Harvard LT, B

Afghanistan has known conflict and war for centuries. Its geographical location, being a land-locked country right in the middle of Asia, with borders to politically strong neighbours, has made it a very attractive place for traders as well as conquerors leading to numerous wars and attempted conquests throughout the years, shaping and moulding the people that we see inhabiting Afghanistan today.

Join KCL as they take a look back in time on the wars and attempted invasions, and delve into the current political landscape of Afghanistan.

Panel includes speakers with knowledge and expertise about the Durrani empire, Anglo-Afghan wars, Soviet invasions and more.
