This episode is the first of a two-part series examining the situation in Afghanistan since the Taliban took over the country during August 2021. For part one we sat down with Horia Mosadiq, an Afghan human rights defender, journalist and Director of the Conflict Analysis Network. During the episode, Horia explains how the treatment and targeting of particular populations – including women, civil society and ethnic and religious minorities – over the past year has contributed to complex atrocity risks. She also shares her insight on how the international community should respond.
