On November 18 in New York City, The Asia Foundation will release findings from Afghanistan in 2011: A Survey of the Afghan People – the broadest, most comprehensive public opinion poll in the country, covering all 34 provinces, with candid data gleaned from face-to-face interviews with almost 6,300 Afghan citizens on security, corruption, women’s rights, the economy, development, and the Taliban. This marks the seventh in the Foundation’s series of surveys in Afghanistan; taken together they provide a barometer of Afghan public opinion over time. The findings help inform leaders, scholars, and the policymaking community focused on the region. The Asia Foundation team presenting the findings includes:

Moderator: Clare Lockhart, Co-founder and Director, Institute for State Effectiveness

Introductory remarks: David D. Arnold, President, The Asia Foundation


George Varughese, Country Representative, Nepal
