The Washington Post Spotlights Afghanistan Flash Survey

March 30, 2021 — The Washington Post features key findings from The Asia Foundation’s Afghanistan Flash Survey: Perceptions of Peace, Covid-19, and the Economy in a piece assessing the country’s interim peace plan. Carried out in three waves of mobile phone surveys collected from 4,303 Afghan adults from all 34 provinces, the series of surveys is actively tracking the changing perceptions of Afghan’s during a critical time of transition.

To learn about the attitudes of ordinary Afghan citizens, we collaborated with the Asia Foundation to administer phone survey experiments regarding specific peace-plan provisions. This survey was conducted in September, before the details of the U.S. plan were known, although the peace provisions tested were known to be part of the negotiations.
