Trump's Afghanistan Strategy Won't End Human Rights Violations Among Immigrant Contractors

August 25, 2017 Quartz

Op-ed by Costs of War contributor Noah Coburn on immigrant contractors: "Tens of thousands of contractors who serve in Afghanistan are from 'third-party' countries, as highlighted in a report released this week by the Costs of War Project at Brown University’s Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs. While it was often assumed by soldiers and US policy makers I interviewed that these contractors in more civilian-esque roles are in less danger in warzones than soldiers, there is little evidence to support this."
