Description

Twenty years after the US-led invasion, the Taliban are back in control of Afghanistan. Will we see a return to the Taliban of the 1990s or have they changed? How are they getting their messages across and how effective is their strategy? Will Jihadist groups thrive again under their protection? What role will Pakistan, Iran and Central Asia play? And what does it mean for Russian and Chinese security and political interests?

Join BBC World presenter Yalda Hakim as she discusses these questions with our expert panel.
