Many details will be known, others serve the addition. This study raises questions, which is also intended. It will however trigger discussion, and inasmuch as good results arise from the fact that she has served her purpose. Summary of Afghanistan remains one of the poorest countries in the world, 80 percent of the population live in absolute poverty. Also, there are strong regional differences.

In major cities, there has been an economic development certainly, even a boom has taken place in some areas. But overall the poverty situation has not improved in the past few years. Increasingly, the people of the country indicate that eight years after the fall of the Taliban regime still no significant economic improvements have occurred. Afghanistan takes a lowest ranks on the UN development index (174er space of a total of 178 countries according to the UNDP HDI index of 2007) and a study has shown in the assessment of risk and vulnerability status of one’s own nation (NRVA) that 45% of the population has difficulties in obtaining food daily. Another 20% so it is estimated, live just above this standard. The country is characterized by its diverse communities: clans, tribes, religious and ethnic groups. Local power structures prevented the emergence of a completely unified State a long time and are now an obstacle to the development of State structures. The military intervention of the United States-led coalition against terrorism”in the fall of 2001 should turn off not only the Taliban and combat terrorism, but initiate at the same time, the reconstruction of Afghanistan and the formation of constitutional structures.
