The Asia Foundation, in partnership with the United States Institute of Peace, is pleased to invite you to a presentation of the findings of the 2013 Survey of the Afghan People.

With the presidential election and the 2014 national security transition approaching, what do Afghan citizens think are the most critical issues facing the country? Now in its ninth year, this survey – based on face-to-face interviews with a nationally-representative sample of over 9,000 Afghan citizens – reveals their views on security, national reconciliation, the economy, development and essential services, governance and political participation, corruption, justice, gender equality, and access to information.

Conducted across the country’s 34 provinces, The Asia Foundation’s annual survey provides a barometer of Afghan public opinion over time, and serves as a resource for policymakers in government, the international community, and the broader Afghan public.

Featuring presenters from The Asia Foundation in Kabul:

Mark Kryzer, Country Representative

Palwasha Kakar, Director of Women’s Empowerment and Development

Keith Shawe, Director of Survey Research

Moderator: Scott Smith, Director of Afghanistan and Central Asia Programs, US Institute of Peace

Please RSVP to USIP by Monday, December 9.

Please note: Photo IDs and RSVPs are required for attendance. For questions or media inquiries, please contact Ms. Ellie Matthews at or 202-588-9420.
