Electronic versions of the lecture I gave in Missoula, Montana, on September 11, 2007, are now available as a podcast or video. Entitled "What is at Stake in Afghanistan?" this was the Ezio Cappadocia Memorial Lecture on Politics and History, part of the President's Lecture Series at the University of Montana.
A webcast of a conference, "Le Canada face au défi afghan," held in Montreal on September 20, is also available online. My keynote speech (Conférence d’honneur académique) is available in video in what are labeled as French and English versions, but as far as I can tell the "English" version is also in French. Perhaps this is required by Quebec law.
You can also watch Canada's Foreign Minister, Maxime Bernier, being repeatedly interrupted and heckled by protesters as he gives his speech at the opening dinner. A ne pas manquer!
Other speakers include former U.N. Deputy Secretary-General Louise Frechette, Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General Chris Alexander (former ambassador of Canada to Afghanistan), and Omar Samad, ambassador of Afghanistan to Canada.
