Cover title.
“The ongoing international military withdrawal from Afghanistan has set
the stage for energising the activities of Afghanistan’s external stakeholders to re-evaluate their activities. The possible return of the Taliban in some form could compel Afghanistan’s current external partners—Iran, India and Russia—to turn into limited spoilers. The absence of an international guarantor in Afghanistan from December 2014 is likely to encourage Pakistan—a greedy spoiler—to intensify its meddling as a means to
reposition the Taliban—a total spoiler—at the helm of Afghan affairs. The
combination of limited, greedy and total spoilers threatens to undermine
security and state-building processes.”
