Role Canada should play in Afghanistan: Canadian Association of Journalists partnering with Aga Khan Foundation Canada

Role Canada should play in Afghanistan: Canadian Association of Journalists partnering with Aga Khan Foundation CanadaThe Canadian Association of Journalists is pleased to partner with Aga Khan Foundation Canada to present CBC journalist Mellissa Fung as a keynote speaker at #CAJ14, which runs May 9-10 at the Holiday Inn and Suites Downtown Vancouver.

Fung will discuss what role Canada should play in Afghanistan as the fledgling nation develops its own institutions during a protracted struggle for political stability. Fung returned to the fragile country last year, five years after she was kidnapped while on assignment in at a refugee camp on the outskirts of Kabul. Fung detailed her journey in a 2012 memoir, “Under an Afghan Sky”.

She is scheduled to speak to delegates on Saturday, May 10, starting at 1 p.m. PT. Fung’s keynote address is one of three at #CAJ14, which also include addresses from Assembly of First Nations National Chief Shawn At-in-chut Atleo and Bergen Record reporter Shawn Boburg. Liveblogs of all #CAJ14 sessions will be available through the CAJ website.
