Country: Afghanistan

I have chosen to focus on Afghanistan for my portfolio project. One reason is the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development list Afghanistan as first on their list of Least Developed Countries. The second reason is since the U.S. has been involved in trying to stabilize the region for so long it will be interesting to see where the county is in its current state. I found an interview with Ehsan Azari, who is a professor now living in Australia that was born and raised in the capital city of Kabul and also received his engineering degree in the same city. Azari discusses the corrupt politics and how the warlords keep significant influence by offering protection and money to leaders. It will be interesting to investigate this country further than has been in the news in the U.S. for more than a decade.
