On November 29th, the Swedish Ambassador to Afghanistan, Tobias Thyberg, will be coming to Uppsala for an alumni talk, and we warmly welcome you to attend.


Tobias Thyberg will be speaking on the current security situation in Afghanistan and the many socio-political challenges it faces. From his practical, “on-the-ground” perspective, the lecture will cover such topics as:

• the Taliban insurgency on the background of the new American strategy

• the development of domestic policy

• Sweden's engagement in the country



There will also be time to ask him all your questions!

Ambassador Thyberg began the post this year, after previously serving as Deputy Representative of Sweden to the EU Political and Security Committee. He has also served at embassies in New Delhi, Moscow and Washington, and at the EU Delegation in Tbilisi, Georgia.



The event is in English, and open to all students and staff, both current and former.

Refreshments will be served after the talk.
