 Please join The Asia Foundation and the Center for International Policy Studies (CIPS) at the University of Ottawa on Tuesday, December 11, for a presentation on the key findings, and a panel discussion on the trends and shifts in the views of Afghan citizens from past years.The annual survey is based on face-to-face interviews with a nationally representative sample of more than 15,000 citizens across all 34 Afghan provinces. The results reveal citizens’ views on a wide range of crucial issues, including security, the economy, corruption, justice, youth issues, reconciliation with the Taliban, access to media, the role of women, governance and political participation. This year’s survey also includes new questions related to local security, access to government services, and elections. First commissioned in 2004, the survey provides an unmatched barometer of Afghan public opinion over time and a unique resource for policymakers and the international community, the Afghan government, and the broader public in Afghanistan.
