Amato, Jonathan Nicholas.
Thesis (M.A.)--Georgetown University, 2010.; Includes bibliographical references.; Text (Electronic thesis) in PDF format. My paper will examine the role that Pashtun tribes and Pashtunwali might play in attempts to pull insurgent fighters away from fighting in Afghanistan. The tribal system and Pashtunwali provide opportunities for reconciliation and reintegration, but could also pose obstacles to such efforts. Tribes and Pashtunwali have been discussed as contributing to the insurgency, and tribes have been enlisted in counterinsurgency efforts, but an attempt to see how the two factors could contribute to reconciliation and reintegration efforts needs further exploration.
