In "Our world. Views from the field." opinion survey, the ICRC commissioned Ipsos, a polling firm, to conduct quantitative (statistical) research surveys in eight countries. A broadly representative sample of the adult general public was interviewed, either in person or by telephone, in each country. The specific sampling methods and any groups/areas excluded are described in the relevant country reports. This report covers Afghanistan. The authors assert that their aim was to develop a better understanding of people’s needs and expectations, to gather views and opinions, and to give a voice to those who have been adversely affected by armed conflict and other situations of violence. Civilians are the losers in any armed conflict. Physical danger not withstanding, insecurity and violence causes displacement of populations and the breakdown of socioeconomic networks. It also has several impacts on assets and livelihoods and adversely effects the provision of, and access to, education and health services. Such is conflicts’ core effect on civilian well-being that it is (finally) starting to be recognised as a central component of development policy and practice.
