Florian Weigand introduces his new book Waiting for Dignity: Legitimacy and Authority in Afghanistan (published by Columbia University Press, 2022), looking at how legitimacy is built and lost during armed conflict. Drawing on 500 interviews, he examines the perspectives of ordinary people in Afghanistan as well as those of competing authorities: insurgents, warlords, members of parliament, security forces and community leaders. This post was originally published on LSE International Development blog.
