Prospects for Afghanistan's Future: Assessing the Outcome of the Afghan Presidential Election

Brookings Institution, Expert Panel, August 25, 2009


"The Afghan people voted on August 20 to select their next president. It remains to be seen which candidate will prevail. Questions also persist about the Taliban’s influence on the election’s outcome and about the viability of Afghanistan’s next government. The result of this election is critical for the Afghan people, NATO’s mission in their country, and for future regional and international security."
