Research & Development

In 2013, CLIP assessed the impact of the practice of baad in the provinces of Panjshir, Parwan, Kapisa and Bamyan. It examined historical trend and the root issues that the practice of baad settles. Subsequently, in 2015, CLIP conducted the District Safety and Security Survey (DSSS) in Panjshir, Parwan, Jalalabad and Kapisa provinces. Funded by UNDP, the aim of the survey was to find out people’s perception on Afghan National Police, their priorities and citizen engagement in community policing. Prior to that, CLIP was awarded with an assessment grant by The Asia Foundation to explore the critical changes occurred, and its impact on security, social, economic, governance, gender, ethnic, and sectarian issues in Faryab province after the withdrawal of the Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) in late 2012. In each of these assessments, studies and surveys, CLIP has used qualitative and quantitative methods and tools including semi-structured interviews, face-to-face interviews, bi-lateral interviews, district mapping, open/close ended questionnaires and focus group discussions.
