The EP Group of Friends of IPS organized ‘Falling Apart’ – an evening seminar about Afghanistan held at the European Parliament in Brussels on 8 May 2007.

The seminar aimed at examining the deep crisis and the escalation of the war in Afghanistan and what should be done, which steps Europe should take to support efforts to tackle the insurgency and the insecurity and to promote regional understanding.

The seminar also looked into the consequences of the lack of an information and communication strategy that plays an important role in the current crisis, and at the fact that Afghan media also struggle considering there is almost no donor money available.

Ramesh Jaura, European Director, IPS-Inter Press Service, welcomed guests and introduced the seminar. Among speakers were Nick Grono, International Crisis Group, Guido Podestà, Chairman of the EP Afghanistan delegation, Giulietto Chiesa, member of the EP Afghanistan delegation, Baroness Nicholson of Winterbourne, MEP, and Ricardo Grassi, IPS.
