Afghanistan: One year of Taliban rule

Wednesday 24 August 2022

In August 2021, the Taliban takeover and withdrawal of international troops triggered a refugee crisis and Afghanistan descended into chaos. One year on, Global Insight assesses the impact of these events – both on those who fled and those still left behind.

We speak to:

  • Fawzia Amini, a senior appeal court judge from Afghanistan, who found refuge in the UK
  • The Honourable Mrs Justice Maura McGowan, a judge of the High Court of England and Wales
  • Lord Peter Goldsmith QC, former UK Attorney General and member of the House of Lords
