This program is a forum on Afghanistan, in partnership with the International Affairs Forum. The forum features four panelists, three of which appeared live on stage at the City Opera House in Traverse City. Jack Segal is a retired diplomat who advised NATO generals and civilian policy makers during the Afghanistan conflict. Shannon Spann DeBruyn is a lawyer and former intelligence officer with experience in counter-terrorism. Edris Fana is an Afghan native who studied at Northwestern Michigan College and became its first non-American Student Government Association President. Rahela Sidiqi joined by video from her home in the U.K. She’s a women’s rights activist, doing work at both the grassroots and governmental policy levels in Afghanistan. Doug Stanton moderated the panel and started by reading a translation of a poem by Rahela Sidiqi.
