Conflict Analysis: Afghanistan


War in Afghanistan is a very complex and multidimensional issue. Current war started in 2001 and has known several phases before partial withdrawal from the coalition of countries which invaded the country. Analyzing war in Afghanistan is an excellent exercise to understand the securitization process to go at war, current terrorism issues and the difficulties to build a strong and stable state. This analysis will specifically focus on:

? Recent history of the country (from the soviet invasion until today)
? 09/11 attacks and the legitimacy to attack Afghanistan
? The protracted war and the failure to create stable institutions and to fight against terrorism
