C3S Issue Map 002/2019

C3S has launched the Issue Map initiative. The reports under this series analyse the status and developments of current scenarios in detail. They attempt to aid the reader to get a more comprehensive idea of the issue being addressed, along with illustrations and data. Issue Maps are available for download as PDFs.

The objective of this Issue Map is to address China’s threat perceptions emanating from non-state actors in its neighbourhood, particularly from Afghanistan. The US decision to withdraw forces from Afghanistan before the end of 2019, has provided Beijing with an opportunity to play the role of a stabilizing force in the country. The brief will predominantly analyse the resurgence of the Taliban as a potent force within Afghanistan and its implications for China’s geo-security. Towards the end, the Issue Map will conclude with an emphasis on international fluctuations pertaining to Afghanistan and China’s role in the Afghan Peace Process.
