Taliban Studies in the World Community
Can the Taliban be Part of the Solution in
Afghanistan has been a country dominated by centrifugal
rather than centripetal energies. These centrifugal forces have become
the main roadblock to a solution of the country's tragic fate. The
external actors of Russia, Pakistan, Iran, the United States, and Saudi
Arabia together have done far more to shape Afghanistan's destiny since
1974 than all the diverse internal forces together. In this respect,
Afghanistan has been steadily reduced to the status of a problem-ridden
periphery of Central Asia. However, the region's governments are
increasingly open to exploring the degree to which a Taliban-dominated
government in Afghanistan can be part of the solution rather than the
source of the problems.
