Mitigating Militancy in Northwest Pakistan

Issue & Policy Briefs September, 2014, No. 160

Nearly three months on from the launch of Operation Zarb e Azb by Pakistan’s armed forces, this policy brief explores the problem of militancy in North Waziristan in northwest Pakistan. The author argues that a more comprehensive strategy focusing on de-radicalization and reintegration of IDPs and non-combatant militants is needed if the military offensive is to prove more than a short-term fix.
