Speech of Ms. Danielle DePaulis (EFSAS) during EFSAS Seminar at the VU University, Amsterdam


Ms. Danielle DePaulis, EFSAS Research Analyst, analysed the ongoing terrorism and violent conflict in Afghanistan, and its larger repercussions for the region of South Asia. Ms. DePaulis provided a historical background of the foreign influence in the country, including the British dominion in the 19thcentury and subsequently the Soviet invasion in 1979. She argued that the series of events that ensue from the 1970s in Afghanistan ultimately led to the development of a force that has become uncontrollable.
