L'Afghanistan Research and Evaluation Unit (AREU) propose une série de ressources et d'outils sur son site : 

- un catalogue en ligne de sa bibliothèque, donne accès aux références de 15 000 ouvrages sur l'Afghanistan. La bibliothèque, créée en 2002, s'est enrichie d'un fonds de 3000 titres issus de la bibliothèque de la Société d'études d'Asie du Sud (Society of South Asian Studies), auparavant connue sous le nom de BIAS (Institut britannique d'études afghanes / British Institute of Afghan Studies). Les documents issus des collections du BIAS ont été acquis entre 1972 et 1981. Ils portent principalement sur les domaines archéologiques et anthropologiques.

- des publications présentent les résultats des recherches de l'AREU. Une grande partie est accessible librement en PDF, d'autres présentent uniquement les sommaires. La lettre d'information trimestrielle, l'Afghanistan Research Newsletter est accessible  en ligne en texte intégral au format PDF depuis le numéro 1 (mars 2009).

- des documents de synthèse sur l'Afghanistan, en texte intégral, reprennent des définitions de termes ou des répertoires  "de A à Z" comme le Guide de l'aide à la reconstruction du pays, un glossaire des institutions afghanes, un guide sur le fonctionnement du gouvernement et du système électoral, une liste de plus de 200 contacts d'institutions afghanes et d'acteurs sur cette aire géographique. Il est possible d'effectuer une recherche par le nom de l'institution et de le croiser avec une région de l'Afghanistan.

AREU est un institut de recherche indépendant dont le siège est à Kaboul. Sa mission affichée est d'informer et d'influencer les acteurs politiques en diffusant les résultats de ses recherches. Le sous titre de son site, informe sur son projet : "Research for a better Afaghanistan / Recherche pour un meilleur Afghanistan". L'AREU a été créé en 2002 par différents organismes non afghans, travaillant en Afghanistan. Son conseil d'administration est affiché sur son site. Il est composé de représentants de l'ONU, d'ONG et des donateurs, dont en particulier, le Danemark, la Finlande, la Norvège, la Suède, la Suisse et le Royaume-Uni. Plusieurs projets menés par l'AREU ont été financés par la Fondation de l'Open Society Institute Afghanistan (FOSIA), la Banque asiatique Foundation (TAF), la Commission européenne (CE) et l'International Development Research Centre (IDRC). Cette structure envisagée au départ dans le cadre de l'ONU en 1998, s'est nommée un moment "Unité de surveillance stratégique" / Strategic Monitoring Unit (SMU).  Un blog, ouvert en avril 2011, présente les actualités de l'institution et signale son déménagement en novembre 2012, toujours à Kaboul.
