Critical Studies on Terrorism, one of the world's leading academic journals of terrorism studies, has published an article authored by Muhammad Feyyaz, School of Governance and Society, UMT. The article is titled ‘The discourse and study of terrorism in decolonised states: the case of Pakistan.’
This article focuses on the absence of terrorism scholarship in developing countries. It argues that most decolonised states, including Pakistan, are yet to grasp the complexities of traditional approaches to the study of terrorism, let alone its critical dimensions. The article explores some of the prevailing conditions in developing countries, specifically decolonised states such as Pakistan, which prevent the development of a robust academic discourse on terrorism and the development of a strong field of study.
