On September 23, 2021, grantees Jane Ferguson and Jeffrey Stern joined guest contributor Nasema Zeerak to examine the current state of affairs in Afghanistan. Pulitzer Center grantee and PBS NewsHour correspondent Amna Nawaz moderated the webinar.

Yet, the impact of the conflict on Afghan civilians, especially women and children, has too often been underreported. In this conversation, panelists draw on their reporting and research to begin addressing those gaps.
