Diary of an Ambassador

The Afghan ambassador in Vienna, Manizha Bakhtari, has found herself in a bizarre situation since the Taliban took power: she represents a country whose old government fled and whose new Taliban government has no international recognition. Under increasingly difficult financial and personal conditions, she decides to stand up to the Taliban and continue her courageous fight for the rights of Afghanistan’s women and girls as an ambassador, true to her motto “peace is not the absence of war, but the presence of justice”.
