AfPak File Podcast-The First 100 Days: Reviewing The Taliban's Record On Social Policy

Afghanistan Afghan women, men and children after the Taliban take over again. November 29, 2021

It's been more than 100 days since the Taliban took power. In the second episode of the AfPak File's special series on this Taliban milestone, we focus on the Taliban government's social policies--with particular emphasis on women, education, and human rights.

To this point, the Taliban has not allowed most older girls to return to school, and many women continue to be barred from working.

What have the Taliban done so far on social policy? What does their performance so far tell us about their priorities? Is there any indication that they have developed a plan or strategy?

These questions and more are addressed by Mary Akrami, an Afghan women's rights activist; Ali Latifi, Al Jazeera's online correspondent for Afghanistan; and Malali Bashir, senior journalist with Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty's Afghanistan service, locally known as Radio Azadi.

Muhammad Tahir, media manager for RFE/RL’s in Washington, moderates the debate.
