As we approach the 10-year anniversary of the U.S. intervention in Afghanistan, many Americans ponder the human costs of this conflict. Rarely in our calculations do we have direct input from the leaders of Afghanistan who are working the gritty issues and building a working representative government in a troubled land. Come hear the official who is working on urban development and construction issues in Afghanistan address the future of his country and his government. Listen to a female member of parliament speak about the development of democratic institutions and the role of women in Afghan society. And hear the governor of Ghazni province speak to the challenges and opportunities he faces.
