Failed Reconstruction in the Forever War

Author:

Abstract:

This research paper addresses the question of why post-war reconstruction efforts in Afghanistan have failed. It explains how following the success of the conduct of America’s Operation Enduring Freedom, Afghanistan went through a complex transition from a state of war to a state of peace. The end of the war brought security, political, economic, and social problems that must be examined in order to ascertain why reconstruction efforts failed.
