Prioritizing Human Security in Pakistanís Erstwhile Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA)

PP: 15-23
Abhishek Yadav,
Pakistanís erstwhile Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) have been merged with Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province in 2018 ushering in a long-awaited reform needed for the development of these tribal areas. This research article examines the approach by the successive governments of Pakistan in the name of national security, which undermined the crucial aspects of human security. The traditional conception of national security has led to the dismal development of the tribal areas with the usage of colonial-era regressive Frontier Crimes Regulations (FCR). The article attempts to cover the physical, economic, food, health, and environmental dimensions from a Human Security perspective with specific reference to the erstwhile FATA. The article suggests that human security discourse needs to be prioritized in the erstwhile FATA for ensuring sustainable development and enduring peace in the region.
