This master’s thesis seeks to answer whether the creation of a joint counter-narcotics task force in Afghanistan would be beneficial to the fight against insurgent activities. It identifies a direct link between the narcotics trade and the insurgency, and utilizes the similar situation in Colombia as a case study from which to draw analysis and conclusions.
