Abstract

This research focuses on securitization in the tribal areas that traced back to the British arrival in the region. Both the British and Pakistan treated the tribal belt with imperial and national security consideration. The British perceived it the center of gravity against the Czarist Russia for India’s survival and security during the nineteenth century Great Game and afterward. Pakistan after independence continued the region with the same colonial pattern against Afghanistan, India, Russia and Iran. Both the colonial and post-colonial power retained the tribal belt as a barren periphery, security zone and geo-strategic center of gravity, for the sole reason of protecting and safeguarding the interest of the core region, in the name of imperial and national security. The main focus of this research is on the post-merger security paradigm of the tribal areas. FATA’s merger as the democratic project based on mainstreaming is changing the imperial legacy of the region. The mainstreaming is shrinking space for the state to use the region for securing and serving the interest of the core region in the pretext of national security. Moreover, it also restricted space for the militants, extremists, anti-state actors and influential elites
