Welcome to a book presentation, where Dr. Mona Kanwal Sheikh (DIIS Copenhagen) will present her new book Guardians of God: Inside the Religious Mind of the Pakistani Taliban.

Based on years of first-hand research by Dr. Sheikh, the book is the most comprehensive account to-date of the Pakistani Taliban and their religious justifications for jihad. Having interviewed and spent time with the Taliban, Dr. Sheikh builds a case for dialogue with a group that may stop fighting if its grievances are understood.

A leading expert on the Pakistani Taliban, Dr. Sheikh will discuss the prospects for conflict resolution with religiously motivated militants. Participants should register with their name and affiliation to daniel.finnbogason@pcr.uu.se by Wednesday 26 April. 

This event is organised in collaboration with Folkuniversitetet.
