Afghan society has been indelibly marked in by war and the exodus of a large part of its population. But it also characterized by the presence of innumerable international and nongovernmental organizations, as well as armed forces from many countries. Adopting mobility as an analytical key, and mindful of the significance of analysing processes and phenomena across scales, I will present a global though intimate ethnography of Afghanistan based on my new book that offers a decentered perspective on the contemporary world.
Alessandro Monsutti is Professor of Anthropology and Sociology at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva. Currently he is a Guest at the IWM.
