Foreign Affairs Cites Afghan Survey

January 8, 2018 — Foreign Affairs cites the 2017 Survey of the Afghan People in “Why the Taliban Isn’t Winning in Afghanistan.”

According to an Asia Foundation poll, roughly 93 percent of Afghans say they are fearful of encountering the Taliban because of its extremist views and brutality. But in addition to public distaste, brutality has also led to the displacement of families, civilian property damage, limited freedom of movement, and has reduced access to humanitarian aid, education, and healthcare—all of which have likely lessened the group’s appeal.
