Abstract

In a recent initiative targeting Muslim extremism in Britain, Communities Secretary Hazel Blears referred to "ungoverned spaces", actual and virtual social spaces that facilitate the radicalisation of Pakistani Muslim youth in Britain. By extension, in the West in political and popular constructions Pakistan is also made intelligible as an ungovernable space, with the rise in conflicts and violence in Pakistan and the perceived lawlessness of its tribal areas.
