Research and evaluation have always played a key role in informing policy choices around the world, but how does this important work continue in a conflict zone? Please join IPSA for a conversation with Dr. Pierre Fallavier and his colleagues from the Afghanistan Research and Evaluation Unit to discuss the challenges and impacts of policy research in Afghanistan. In preparation for the political transition in the country, AREU has focused much of its work on analyzing political participation, governance, corruption, and peace and reintegration. The AREU team will present the findings of some this research and facilitate a conversation with students and other guests on challenges, lessons learned, and opportunities for research.
