Title : Radicalization in Pakistan

Author : Amir Rana, Safdar Sial

Release Date : July 2012

ISBN : 978-969-9645-08-2

Length: 173 pages


This book recapitulates the core findings and outcomes of Pak Institute for Peace Studies' (PIPS) four-year long research and experience-sharing exercise meant to expand the empirical base of the research and analysis on the subject of radicalization and evolve strategies for deradicalization in Pakistan. It is based on PIPS' five major surveys on radicalization conducted between 2008 and 2011, several studies on the subject produced during the same period, and its frequent interaction and dialogue with a range of local and international scholars. The book has seven chapters and an introduction to definitional discourse on the subject in Pakistan's context. The first two chapters discuss at length the factors of radicalization, and trends and levels of radicalization among different societal segments, including women, and geographical units of Pakistan, respectively. The third chapter analyses the link between larger religious discourse in Pakistan and radicalization.
