Noting several specific factors, he touched upon the reintegration of Taliban fighters into the society.
The overall objective of this workshop is to lay the foundation for long-term NATO cooperation with Afghanistan through the exchange of dialogue and ideas on topics in the realm of civilian and parliamentary oversight of armed forces. The focus of the event will be directed at establishing a base-line level of understanding of the fundamental principles that surround the use of armed forces in internal and external situations, and the politics surrounding their deployment. The intention here is to present and discuss the principles and the control mechanisms that would enable the civil powers to monitor and control the armed forces as they conduct operations, and placing those principles in an Afghan context. Workshop consists of 12 modules and will last till March 7. On the last day of Workshop participants will have a city tour to Baku.
