In 2002, the Netherlands sent a peace-keeping contingent to Afghanistan as part of ISAF, the International Security Assistance Force. In this programme, we speak with some of the officers and soldiers who took part in the mission, as well as a photographer and a film-maker who have tried to convey the experience of young Dutch people in “a place you would otherwise never in your life visit”.
