Social science research and field work in Afghanistan

Date of publication: September 13, 2012

Abstract:

Conducting quality research in a country as vast and insecure as Afghanistan is not without its challenges, i.e. high security risks (Taliban), violence, intimidation, corruption, ethnic, linguistic and gender differences, extensive illiteracy, hostility to research and strict cultural restrictions on access to households. This presentation addresses what can be done to overcome these challenges in order to give a voice to the people of Afghanistan and establish a culture of research in Afghanistan.
