Expert interview: Afghanistan & the Taliban

The return to power of the Taliban in summer 2021 surprised the majority of the global public. Dr. Thomas K. Gugler of the Goethe Universität Frankfurt talked to the Documentation Centre about the ideological core of the Taliban, their relation with the Deobandi movement and the impact the return of the Taliban has on women’s rights in Afghanistan. Dr. Gugler has published extensively on the subject and is co-author of the standard volume Faith-Based Violence and Deobandi Militancy in Pakistan (London 2016)
