There are three concepts in contemporary political geography which aptly describe the processes that are contemporarily taking place in many Third World countries. These are the concepts of 'insurgent state', 'rogue state' and 'failed state'. We can assume that Afghanistan is a country where many theses proposed in the aforementioned theories have been corroborated over the recent years. The struggles and victory of the mujahedin can be regarded as the confirmation of the 'insurgent state' theory; the several years of the Taliban rule have made Afghanistan perceived as one of the 'rogue states', while the developments of the most recent years (just as at many earlier stages in its history) prove that Afghanistan shows some attributes of a 'failed state'.
