September 9, 2021 | Die Bundeswehr in Afghanistan – eine Bilanz mit Licht und Schatten

September 6, 2021, 6:00 p.m.

Online-Discussion

Bis zum 11. September werden die Vereinigten Staaten ihre letzten Truppen aus Afghanistan abgezogen haben. Damit findet der längste Krieg der amerikanischen Geschichte sein Ende. An der Seite unseres engsten Verbündeten ist die Bundeswehr in Afghanistan erwachsen geworden. Hier starteten deutsche Streitkräfte die erste Offensive seit dem Zweiten Weltkrieg. Hier wurde die deutsche Öffentlichkeit erstmals mit dem Kämpfen und Töten konfrontiert. Und doch ist die Bilanz durchwachsen geblieben. Wurden die gesetzten politischen Ziele vollständig erreicht? Wie ist die Bundeswehr durch den schwierigsten Einsatz seit ihrer Gründung geprägt worden? Hat sich der vernetzte Ansatz am Hindukusch bewährt? Anlässlich des 20. Jahrestages der Terroranschläge von New York wollen wir herausfinden, welche politischen und militärischen Lehren aus dem größten Einsatz deutscher Streitkräfte seit 1945 gezogen werden können, um den Frieden in der Welt zukünftig noch sicherer zu machen.

More information will follow soon.

POSTPONED | The Rise of Non-State Sponsors

Poster_Rise_Non-State Sponsors_Postponed.pngDue to the current situation in Israel, we, unfortunately, have to postpone today's lecture by Prof. Dr. Assaf Moghadam. More information concerning the new scheduling of the event is forthcoming.

 

Existing studies of conflicts involving the use of surrogates have been largely state-centric, viewing the relationship between sponsors and proxies primarily as one in which state sponsors utilize non-state actors, or other states, as proxies. Far less attention has been devoted to sponsor-proxy arrangements in which non-state actors play superordinate roles as sponsors in their own right. Prof. Moghadam examines why and how non-state actors sponsor proxies and discusses the broader implications of this trend. He argues that non-state sponsors select and utilize proxies mainly for their perceived political value—in contrast to state sponsors, who value proxies primarily for their military utility. He discusses the implications of this trend for theory and policy.

A lecture with Prof. Dr. Assaf Moghadam, Dean of the Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy and Strategy of the
Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya, Israel.

This event is hold in English.
