AAN’s analysis is quoted in this article on the web portal that represents the concerted effort of the Bundeszentrale für politische Bildung (Federal Center for Political Education), Deutsche Welle, the Goethe Institut and the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations) to promote dialogue with the Islamic world:

… spectacular suicide attacks such as these are just the tip of an iceberg that occasionally merits a mention in German media. An analysis recently published by the Afghanistan Analysts Network illuminates the profound nature of this sense of an ever-present threat in a country where the Taliban controls entire provinces and where fighting took place in 31 of the nation’s 34 provinces last year.

(…) The impression of a permanent threat is further underlined by the number of targeted killings, for example of human rights activists or political opponents, which according to the Afghanistan Analysts Network increased by 11.4 percent last year alone.
