Sabina Khan (MAIPS ´10)

July 8, 2011

Sabina Khan (IPS’10) graduated with a master’s degree in International Policy Studies and a focus on conflict resolution in December of 2010. A mere four months later she had published her first op-ed article “Reforms in Fata,” for the Express Tribune, a New York Times, International Herald Tribune affiliated newspaper in Pakistan. She is now a regular op-ed contributor, publishing two articles a month as well as writing her own blog for the newspaper.

She is a native of South Waziristan, which is a mountainous region in Pakistan bordering Afghanistan and part of the Federally Administered Tribal Areas (FATA) in Pakistan. Sabina came to the Monterey Institute as an advanced-entry student with a graduate degree in Defense and Strategic Studies from Quaid-i-Azam University in Islamabad and is particularly interested in researching and writing about the challenges of governance in FATA.


She is doing a great job for her home land, i am also belonging from South Waziristan Agency. We also took some steps for the betterment of our Mahsud nation in the field of Education in shape of (MSEF) "Mahsud Student Educational Forum". Hope that Sabina will also support us, and will write about our this effort in her newspaper.

Since she is a native of South Waziristan, there will not be much trouble. She has been doing a great job so far. I hope she maintains the consistency. Anyway, it was interesting to read more about the Quaid-i-Azam University.  visit us
