June 28, 2010

Professor of education Zaher Wahab was invited to sit on a panel to represent Afghan perspectives on war at the 2010 U.S. Social Forum in Detroit. The conference is a nonpartisan gathering of social organizers from around the country.

Dr. Wahab joined other Iraqi and Afghan leaders to offer eyewitness accounts, analysis and strategies for U.S. alternatives to war.

From 2002-2007, Dr. Wahab served as a senior advisor to the Minister of Higher Education in Afghanistan. Beginning in 2008, he has been instrumental in designing and now teaching the only master’s degree program for teacher education faculty in Afghanistan. You can read more about his work in a recent Chronicle magazine article or though the blog he keeps when he returns to his home country each year, Dispatches from Afghanistan.
