Personal safety and growing fears about corruption and unemployment dominate the concerns of most Afghans, according to a survey published by the Asia Foundation which helps to shape international policy on Afghanistan.

The research revealed that 59% of those questioned said they would be afraid to participate in elections, scheduled to be held next year.

There was more optimism about the capability of Afghan security forces but more and more people reveal a sense of pessimism about state corruption.
