Kashif Saeed Khan, Department of International Environment and Development Studies/Noragric, Norwegian University of Life Sciences

June 6, 2013 - 13:15

Kashif Saeed Khan from the Department of International Environment and Development Studies/Noragric at Norwegian University of Life Sciences (UMB) in Ås will defend his PhD thesis entitled ”Conflict, Livelihoods and Local Perspectives of Peace Building in Post-9/11 North-Western Pakistan” on Thursday 6 June 2013, at 13.15. Venue: T 401 (Tower building), UMB, Ås. The evaluation committee consists of Dr. Arne Strand, Research Director, Chr. Michelsen Institute (CMI), Bergen; Associate Professor Bahadar Nawab, Head, Department of Development, COMSATS Institute of Information Technology (CIIT) Abbottabad, Pakistan; and Professor Ruth Haug, Deputy Vice Chancellor Research UMB.
The thesis, consisiting of four research papers, advances knowledge on a particularly under-researched area: it focuses on conflict, livelihood and local perspectives of peace building in north-western Pakistan. In doing so, it examines mainstream perspectives on the region, liberal peace building in relation to humanitarian and development interventions, and understandings of livelihoods in postconflict and post-disaster contexts. The study comprises an introductory chapter and four individual research papers. The introductory chapter introduces the context of north-western Pakistan, and develops an understanding of the socio-economic and long-term development challenges of the area. It provides a conceptual and theoretical understanding of perspectives outlined for this study. More information.
