Jacob Shapiro and Saad Gulzar Political Violence in Pakistan: Myths vs. Realities

The study argues for a data- driven approach in answering challenges posed by political violence. It uses incident level data to examine the scale, scope, and geographic distribution of political violence in Pakistan. Evidence suggests that there has not been a fundamental change in the patterns of political violence in the core population centres of Pakistan. However, the recent increase in violence in FATA, KPK, and Balochistan, are uncharacteristic of their historical patterns.
