Negotiating with the Taliban: An inside view

We ask Afghan negotiator Fawzia Koofi about a deal with the Taliban and debate France’s controversial ‘security’ law.

Afghanistan’s government and the Taliban announced they had reached a deal this week that would allow them to press forward with negotiations aimed at ending decades of violence.

In this episode of UpFront, we speak to government negotiator Fawzia Koofi, one of the few women sitting at the table with the group, about whether peace is really possible.

And in the Arena, we debate France’s controversial “security” law which has led to widespread protests. Critics say it’s a threat to civil liberties and freedom of expression.
