Practicing Democracy in Afghanistan: Key findings on perceptions, parliament and elections

This policy note draws on over three years of AREU research into the dynamics of representative governance in Afghanistan at local and national levels (see box below for details). It is intended to be an introductory guide for donors, programme implementers, educators, capacity-builders and others interested in politics in Afghanistan, and identifies relevant AREU reports for further reading, depending on specific fields of interest. The paper is divided into three interconnecting themes: Perceptions among the Electorates; Electoral Dynamics; Parliamentary Politics.
