This Morocco World News article mentions the UN Senior Leadership Appointments Dashboard, developed by CIC and the NYU Center for Global Affairs.
"According to a study published by New York University’s Center for International Cooperation, the appointment of women to senior leadership positions markedly increased between 1995 and 2020. While women made up 19% of senior U.N. appointments in 1995, they made up 62% of these high-level appointments in 2020."
CIC research associate Sabir Ibrahimi writes in this Tolo News op-ed that ambiguous rhetoric is creating a false narrative about the cause of increased violence in Afghanistan.
"The US-Taliban agreement in February 2020 created hope for a reduction in violence in Afghanistan," writes Ibrahimi. "However, since then, violence has instead intensified across the country. The American officials have said that the increase in the level of violence goes against the spirit of the US-Taliban agreement."
CIC senior fellow Barnett Rubin is intervewied by South Asia Monitor on the recent developments in the intra-Afghan dialogue.
“It is a result of hard work by all, mediation by Qatar, and external pressure on all parties,” he said. "The Biden administration will not rip up agreements as Trump did. It will be a predictable and steady partner for allies and adversaries alike.”
