Endorsement from Rory Stewart

November 30, 2009

“Brewing Tea in a Kettle of War is an important project because it will focus attention on the urgent need for a long-term commitment to locally led and implemented economic and social development in Afghanistan. This message is essential to win public support for the critically important work of helping Afghans, and the people of other weak and failing states, strengthen their own capacity and stabilize their countries. The film Brewing Tea in a Kettle of War and the public engagement campaign around it will help the public – and policymakers – understand this.”

Rory Stewart, Director of Carr Center for Human Rights Policy, Harvard University; Author of The Places in Between an account of his walk across Afghanistan in 2002 and The Prince of the Marshes, describing his experiences as a Deputy Governorate for the Coalition Provisional Authority in Iraq
