The EastWest Institute (EWI) hosted panel discussions on its Afghanistan Reconnected report in Washington, D.C. and New York on October 14 and 17. The event in Washington D.C. was held in cooperation with and at the premises of the United States Institute of Peace (USIP). The event in New York, involving several Ambassadors/Permanent Representatives and distinguished EWI board members, was held at the United Nations Headquarters under Chatham House rule. At both meetings, senior representatives of the governments of Afghanistan, the United States and Germany, with the participation of members of the private sector (primarily from Pakistan and India), shared their views with an audience of senior diplomats, academics, businesspeople and civil society.
