On Thursday 27 April, Dr. Mona Kanwal Sheikh visited the Department of Peace and Conflict Research to give a presentation on her new book “Guardians of God: Inside the Religious Mind of the Pakistani Taliban”. 

The book is based on years of first-hand research and is the first major study of the Pakistani Taliban, their religious interpretations, and its impact on their strategies and validations of jihad. 

Dr. Mona Kanwal Sheikh is based at the Danish Institute for International Studies (DIIS) in Copenhagen, Denmark, and is an affiliate of the “Resolving Jihadist Conflicts?” research project. Thank you Mona for your visit and excellent presentation!
