Zoli op-ed on Taliban peace talks published in Newsday

Zoli,-Corri.jpgCorri Zoli, research assistant professor of political science, provides commentary on the US-Taliban peace negotiations in her article titled "Second thoughts about Taliban peace talks," published in Newsday. "Some analysts have argued that the current peace negotiations with the Taliban are a face-saving exit for the United States, given hefty public pressure from the Trump administration, which intends to keep its campaign promise of getting out of Iraq and Afghanistan," writes Zoli. "While the number of U.S. troops remaining in Afghanistan is yet to be determined — if any at all — few believe that Taliban members are genuinely willing to commit to peace, ethnic and religious pluralism, or even inclusive power-sharing forms of governance." 09/12/19
