Japan is poised to play a major role helping Afghanistan rebuild. But it won’t be easy. The United Nations says it could take billions of dollars and many years to reconstruct the shattered nation, a long, arduous task that will demand the sustained political will of the international community and the commitment of the new Afghan leadership.

Join distinguished panelists, including Sadako Ogata, Japan’s Special Representative for Afghanistan, Kiyotaka Kawabata, Political Affairs Officer, Office of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for  Afghanistan, United Nations, and Barnett R. Rubin, Director of Studies and Senior Fellow at the Center on International Cooperation, NYU, as they discuss transforming Afghanistan from a war-torn basket case into a viable nation state and full-fledged member of the global community.

Tickets: $10, Japan Society members and seniors $8, students $5.
