Nenad examined the security situation in Afghanistan, which arose as a result of the withdrawal of the US armed forces and other Coalition members, by offering arguments in support of the US’s faulty legitimacy and contacts with the Taliban and other ethno-religious leaders. Dr. Stekić also went throuhg the impact of the Provincial Reconstruction Teams – PRTs – on the post-conflict state building process in Afghanistan.
