2012 Survey of the Afghan People- Washington, DC and Kabul Launches

On November 14, 2012, The Asia Foundation in Kabul and Washington DC released Afghanistan in 2012: A Survey of the Afghan People, its eighth annual survey of Afghan citizens across all 34 provinces. In June, a team of Afghan pollsters fanned out across the country to gather first-hand opinions from nearly 6,300 Afghan citizens. As the 2014 deadline nears for the transition of national security from NATO forces to Afghan control, The Asia Foundation survey reveals useful, policy-relevant information on security, reconciliation, unemployment, and governance.

Mark Kryzer, Country Representative, The Asia Foundation-Afghanistan; Palwasha Kakar, Survey Author and Senior Advisor, The Asia Foundation-Afghanistan; and Sunil Pillai, Technical Advisor, The Asia Foundation, presented key findings at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. Watch here.

Abdullah Ahmadzai, Deputy Country Representative, The Asia Foundation-Afghanistan, and survey authors, Fazel Rabi Wardak, and Fazel Rabi Haqbeen led the presentation in Kabul.
