The objective of this one-day conference is to highlight the relationship of Islamic extremism, international terrorism and regional security in the context of tribal areas of Pakistan and Afghanistan. The tribal belt within Pakistan is based on constitutional uncertainty and inadequate legal mechanisms for implementation of human rights and criminal justice system. The lawlessness within the tribal areas surrounding Pakistan has also created a safe-haven for Islamic fundamentalists: this conference critically examines the role of the international community and the States of Pakistan and Afghanistan in developing an adequate legal framework and related institutions
The conference will address the following topics:
â? International law, regional security and issues of terrorism
â? Pakistan's tribal areas in the legal context
â? Tribal areas, the threat from terrorism and British Islamic fundamentalists
â? Women's rights, religious and cultural intolerance and the tribal areas of Afghanistan and Pakistan
INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE JOINTLY ORGANISED BY BRUNEL LAW SCHOOL AND THE BRITISH INSTITUTE OF INTERNATIONAL AND COMPARATIVE LAW, IN ASSOCIATION WITH THE INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE FOR STRATEGIC STUDIES and sponsorship of Eurasia-Net for the session on women's rights and religious intolerance
