The Shirazi Foundation attended an event hosted by the United States Institute of Peace titled Beyond Afghanistan’s Dangerous Summer United States Institute of Peace. A panel of experts convened to explain the current situation in near east Asia and suggested that many of the extremist groups have traveled north and has caused unrest. There was also some skepticism whether or not the extremist groups in that region will split into different factions and join under the flag of ISIS. Some experts also remained optimistic towards reaching peace, reconciliation and stability in the region.
