The Honorable Najla Ayubi

Please join the World Affairs Council, Channel Foundation, Linksbridge SPC, the Seattle University Law School Center for Global Justice, and the Women’s Regional Network in welcoming Afghan Judge Najla Ayubi for a moderated discussion with Center for Global Justice Director Dr. Tayyab Mahmud.

In this conversation, Judge Ayubi will share her insights on the current social, economic, and security situation in Afghanistan, as well as her unique perspective on the political transition in Afghanistan, and the role of Pakistan and India in Afghanistan’s future. 

An active leader in women’s empowerment initiatives, Judge Ayubi will speak to how Afghan women are coping as they face increasingly violent extremist forces, and how political transitions in the U.S., Europe, and South Asia can impact the lives of women and girls in war-torn regions. She will also share recent reports and evidence of the state of women’s lives and security in the region from the Women’s Regional Network, a community of South Asian civil society leaders who develop “solutions, as a network, to address extremism, corruption and militarization of aid as they impact women’s security.” 

  • The event will be on October 13th from 6-7:30 PM, followed by a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception
  • The event will be held at Seattle University Law School, 901 12th Ave., Room C1
