“This paper explores the relationship between Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT)- and military-delivered aid projects and security in Helmand Province during the period from 2006 to early 2008. Afghanistan provided an opportunity to examine one of the most concerted recent efforts to use ‘hearts and minds’ projects to achieve security objectives, as it has been the testing ground for new approaches to using reconstruction assistance to promote stability, which in some cases (e.g., Provincial Reconstruction Teams) were then exported to Iraq. The Helmand case study is part of a larger Afghanistan country study composed of five provinces: Balkh, Faryab, Helmand, Paktia, and Uruzgan. Due to conditions in Helmand, a different methodology was used there. The Helmand methodology involved synthesizing and analyzing data drawn from focus group discussions, polls, and key informant interviews.”—(p. 3).
