I am broadly interested in security relations in South Asia, especially the India-Pakistan-Afghanistan triangle, and in normative, policy-oriented research on the prospects for peaceful transformation in the region.
The War on Terror Meets the English School: An Analysis of International Society's Responsibility towards Pakistan
My thesis critically examines the international narrative on militancy in Pakistan, by analysing the emergence of violent extremist groups in the country in the context of domestic, regional and global history. It thus addresses the de-politicisation and de-historicisation of terrorism that has occurred in the wake of the 11 September 2001 attacks in the United States. It further recognises the dehumanising effect of the War-on-Terror discourse and overturns it by paying serious attention to Pakistan's efforts to rehabilitate and reintegrate militants. The thesis provides policy recommendations for international society on opportunities for security cooperation to deal with the challenge posed by transnational terrorist groups with bases in the country, amid the shifting power structure of the international system.
