Afghanistan is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. It grabs people and doesn’t let go. I spent a large part of my life there, enchanted, entangled, engaged. Coming and going, but always returning.

You can find most of my research and writing here and here on the AAN website.

I stepped down as co-director of the Afghanistan Analysts Network in September 2017, but I’m sure I’ll stay involved and will continue to talk and write about the country.

None of us really leave.
