New Study Paper: The Durand Line
Geo-political and geo-strategic analysts have characterised it as one of the most perilous hot spots in the world, stained with a long history of bloodshed and war. In addition, the origins of the Durand Line still remain one of the most under-researched aspects of the border dispute. Illuminating those details would help clarify the contradictory claims of both Afghanistan and Pakistan. This paper will explore thoroughly the historical background, which gave birth to the 2,430 km border, since legacy is an essential factor which affects the nature of foreign relations of countries altogether with domestic and external variables.
