The Diplomat: Despite Rising Violence, Some Promising Trends in Afghanistan
Analysis of the recent release of the Asia Foundation’s Survey of the Afghan People has centered around Afghan’s increasingly pessimistic views on both security and the future in general. While the results certainly point in a pessimistic direction, many notable trends that emerged from the survey in 2016 had a more positive side.
The survey itself is impressive considering the geographic, ethnic, religious, and security issues that poll interviewers had to contend with. In just slightly over one month, over 12,000 Afghans were interviewed representing 16 ethnic groups and all 34 provinces.
