The Hot Topic – How Will Situations in Afghanistan Affect Security Around the World?

After 20 years of an American-led coalition ending the rule of Taliban in Afghanistan, the 15th August 2021 saw US troops withdrawing from their positions, revitalising the Taliban, and allowing them to take over the capital, Kabul as the last troops left on the 31st August.

With the potential for more and more extremist groups to become active due to current circumstances, we investigate how the situation in Afghanistan could potentially spur on terror attacks on specific sectors.
