In the context of its weekly radio shows, and current photo exhibition on Afghanistan – presented from October 28 until November 28 – Géopolis/Euradio invites you for a public radio broadcast with Dr Bojan Savic, who will talk about his book “Afghanistan under Siege.”
In this book, based on field work undertaken in Afghanistan itself and through engagement with postcolonial theory, Bojan Savic critiques western intervention in Afghanistan by showing how its casting of Afghan natives as “dangerous” has created a power network which fractures the country – in echoes of 19th and 20th century colonial powers in the region. Savic also offers an analysis of how and by what means global security priorities have affected Afghan lives.
Bojan Savic is Lecturer in International Relations at the University of Kent, Brussels School of International Studies. His current research combines insights from Critical Geopolitics, Postcolonial Studies, Critical Security Studies, and International Development.
