August 15 marks one year since the Taliban took over Kabul after the U.S. withdrawal. Afghanistan has since undergone dramatic changes. Outside monitors have raised human rights concerns, as the Taliban implemented changes to women’s rights, education systems, and activism. We explore the current political structure and economic state of the country under the Taliban’s rule. We also discuss President Joe Biden’s strategy towards Afghanistan and the future of the conflict-ridden country. Dr. Madiha Afzal joins us today to discuss Afghanistan, one year later.
