The Afghanistan NGO Safety Office: ANSO Quarterly data report Q. 2 2012
LATEST QUARTERLY REPORT
By the end of June, AOG initiated attacks had decreased by 38% compared to the first six months of 2011, ANSF‐IMF activity levels had decreased collectively by 25%, and the total number of NGO security incidents had fallen by 17%.
Despite the downturn, the underlying structure of the conflict has not changed. Both parties remain locked in a co‐evolutionary stalemate, albeit one of de-escalation instead of escalation, and are more consistent in their self‐projection of victory - rather than in their definition of what such victory could look like and how to get there.
