Research overview

Primarily, I am interested in Conflict Studies and Social Theory of International Politics. I am working on Societal Psychology to look into how conflict behaviour of larger groups are shaped. I am also studying the psycho-dynamics of conflict in any society.

Current Research

I am using the schema of Psycho-cultural theory of conflict to find out the cultural foundations of psychological rivalry between two South Asian titans; India and Pakistan. My research is aimed at finding causal link among primary social institutions, cultural concepts of conflict, and people's general conflict behaviour. 

Thesis Title

A Psycho-Cultural Analysis of Pakistan-India Conflict

Research Grants

I have been funded by Punjab Higher Education Commission of Pakistan for my Ph.D Research
