Dr. Alam Payind,director of the Middle East Studies Center at The Ohio State University will speak on Wednesday, March 20 at 7 p.m. at the Eastern Campus, 4250 Richmond Road, Highland Hills.  A reception will begin at 6:15 p.m. in the Performing Arts Center Lobby.

On Oct. 7, 2012, the war in Afghanistan became the longest war in U.S. history. After 11 years of fighting and more than 12,000 deaths and injuries suffered by U.S. led coalition forces, American policy-makers are searching for safe ways to extricate the U.S. out of the sticky Afghan quagmire which for centuries has swallowed the resources and pride of invading superpowers during different historical periods.

This presentation will focus on the current social, political and security developments in Afghanistan and on the challenges ahead as the Armed Forces of Afghanistan are preparing to take full control of security in their country after the withdrawal of U.S. combat forces in 2014.

Free visitor parking is available in Lots B1 and B2.
