The US/NATO plan to deliver supplies to Afghanistan via Central Asia, Russia and the Caucasus is far more than a scheme for provisioning armed forces. This CACI Forum will identify strategic and economic dimensions of the plan and will consider both its perils and potential. Our speakers, Dr. Kuchins and Mr. Sanderson, are completing a study of the proposed network.
The Forum opens with a reception and refreshments at 5 PM; the program will begin promptly at 5:30 PM and conclude at 7 PM. RSVP for this event is mandatory and will not be accepted after 10 AM on the day of the event. To register, please send an email with your name and affiliation to SAISCACIForums@jhu.edu or call 202-663-7723.
