Occasional Paper No. 16, August 2012
Justice and State-Building in Afghanistan: State vs. Society vs. Taliban is one of a series of analytical papers on The Asia Foundation’s recently released public-opinion survey, Afghanistan in 2011: A Survey of the Afghan People. The series of essays provide detailed analysis of the survey data on the opinions and perceptions of Afghans toward government, public policy, democracy, and political and social change as interpreted by specialists who have in-depth knowledge of the region. The contributors comment on trends, patterns, and variations owing to Afghan geography, ethnicity, and other factors, and offer policy advice with a long-term view on the future of Afghanistan.
