Extremism & Radicalization in FATA: Impacts on Culture
The ongoing violent conflict in Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) of Pakistan has changed the overall picture of the region in a decade of war. The war brought both structural (institutional including social institutions, economic and political institutions) and thematic (values and codes including Pashtunwali, religious values and others) implications for the region. The seminar organized by FATA Research Centre in Islamabad on the topic “Extremism and Radicalization in FATA: Impacts on Culture” focuses more on the later one i.e. thematic changes in the culture of Pashtun society in FATA.
