Youth Bulge and Rising Terrorism in Pakistan and Afghanistan

Shesanjali Panda (Author) Narottam Gaan (Author)

In the traditional paradigm of realism and neorealism security has been understood as centering on state and its military and strategic establishment. In a preconceived and on a priori analysis the international system being anarchic the states solely depending on self-help are bound to view the world in binaries such as self-versus- the other. The other is always a threat or in a position to be menaced by similar states. It means, the states in their security framework keep spatial distancing or walling out the other as the fulcrum. In preoccupation with this traditional conceptualization is absent the analysis of threats from the non-traditional sources, such as climate change, environmental crisis, poverty and demography. In recent years, the population age structure and youth bulge and its impact on security, conflict and terrorism has been at the centerstage of analysis. The present work stands as a testament to the linkage between terrorism in Pakistan and Afghanistan and youth bulge.

Narottam Gaan

Narottam, Gaan, Ph.D. and D.Litt. has been teaching in political science in different colleges since 1978. Not being lured by the lucre of Allied Services (ICS) in 1983 he left the job to stay in the academic life. Publication of innumerable articles and papers in various journals in India and abroad, and five books including this stands as a testament to his scholarship and deep acquaintance with a wide ranging subjects. Privileged to visit Austria, Hungary, Slovakia and Croatia on an Austrian government scholarship, he attended many conferences and programmes abroad and awarded a Certificate of Achievement in International Studies from European University Centre for Peace Studies Stadtschlaining, Austria. His presnet post doctoral work on environment, security, development, peace and economic rethinking and various aspects of International Relation entities him to be one of the few celebrated scholars working in India. His next work, Environmental Issues and Challenges: A Critique on International Relation Theories, another feather in his cap of achievement, is demonstrative of his unceasing efforts and unflinching determination to scale the intellectual and academic heights. His new and unconventional ideas on a vast array of subjects ranging from national and international politics to humanity, environment, human rights, security, and development and getting coverage in the daily news papers and journals to the utmost appreciation of both the readers and the layman, show his deep sense of commitment to the subject and concerns with the critical problems plaguing the humanity at present and his being opened up to the inward traffic from other disciplines.
