Thesis Outline

My thesis reframes the security discourse on Pakistan by contextualising it both historically and geopolitically; it also draws on the literature on the place of emotions in International Relations. Viewing the Pakistani security landscape through this broad prism, the thesis considers counter-terrorism in the country, paying particular attention to its fledgling programme to rehabilitate militants and exploring how international society might better support this novel initiative. The thesis both employs and contributes to English School theory, developing the school's world society concept and illustrating how the theory might be applied to the regional level of analysis.
