The book has provided extensive information about how telecom sector has gradually developed in Pakistan, what are the challenges this sector is facing now days. The thesis has provided the present competition scenario within this sector in Pakistan. It has also provided information about how Government institutes and policies are playing their role for the growth of the telecom sector in Pakistan? Our empirical findings clearly show that there are many prospects for the growth of telecom sector in Pakistan and environment is favorable for the sector. There is much more potential for already running telecom companies and newly investors in this segment as well. Although there is political instability in Pakistan but deregulation of whole telecom sector and autonomous position of PTA is providing the shelter to this sector against political instability. Economy of Pakistan has shown a consistent growth in the last couple of years but rise in inflation can cause problems for investors. Competition is very high but still there are big opportunities in this sector for newly coming companies.
'An urgent and extraordinary book. Weaving a philosophical analysis of Heidegger, Agamben and Foucault, Jan draws out the implications of their thought for a radical analysis of the ontological politics of Islam and Pakistan. Whether writing about the 'Ulama and Deoband schools, blasphemy laws, the military, beards, or the Bamiyan Buddhas, Jan provokes and challenges our thinking while unearthing the ground on which Pakistan—and our world—are built.' —Joel Wainwright, Department of Geography, Ohio State University, USA 'In this exceptionally inventive and important book, Jan shows us that the problems besetting political life in Pakistan are part of a more troubling crisis in modern forms of power. Challenging accounts that cordon off «political Islam» from «the West,» Jan discloses their fundamental indistinction and thus, through his practice of critical ontology, reorients our understanding of how power and violence are at work in the world.' —Joshua Barkan, Department of Geography, University of Georgia, USA The Metacolonial State presents a novel rethinking of the relationship between Islam and the Political. Key to the text is an original argument regarding the «biopoliticization of Islam» and the imperative need for understanding sovereign power and the state of exception in resolutely ontological terms. Through the formulation of a critical ontology of political violence, The Metacolonial State endeavors to shed new light on the signatures of power undergirding postcolonial life, while situating Pakistan as a paradigmatic site for reflection on the nature of modernity's precarious present. The cross-disciplinary approach of Dr. Jan's work is certain to have broad appeal among geographers, historians, anthropologists, postcolonial theorists, and political scientists, among others. At the same time, his explication of critical ontology – with its radical reading of the interlacement of history, power and the event – promises to add a bold new dimension to social science research on Islamism and biopolitics.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2013 in the subject Economics - International Economic Relations, National University of Study & Research in Law, course: BA.LLB, language: English, abstract: The concept of a Foreign Directed Investment is a very important part of the Indian Economy because Economic liberalization had varying effects on the behavior of economic factors and therefore on the evolution of various economic sectors and the Indian economy as a whole. Liberalizing reforms were intended to have a strong impact on the investment process. The method of allowing FDI started in the 1990's, when the economy was liberalized, thereby allowing foreign goods to this paper tries to examine the developments in both economic and political aspects, relating to the growth in the FDI. We also evaluate and try to establish whether there is any relation between the FDI and the economic growth and prosperity across the various Indian states. In other words, has the link between the economic growth of a state and the amount of FDI become stronger in the aftermath of the reforms? Another point to notice is that there appears to be a large amount of regional income disparity between the states due to the larger amounts of association of FDI.

The aim of this work is the better understanding of structural sexual violence against women. Through a human rights approach, the author examines the link between the gendered discriminatory policies against women and the occurrences of sexual violence against female soldiers within the Peruvian Armed Forces. This empirical study demonstrates that whereas civil and political rights must be respected and enforced, the satisfaction of socio-economic rights is also a key element for the prevention of violence against women. The cases of discrimination in the access to education, to labor, and reproductive rights within the Peruvian Military demonstrate that, in reality, women are forced to remain in situations where they are exposed to sexual violence because of the existence of structural organizations perpetuating the unequal power relations between men and women.
Academic Paper from the year 2014 in the subject Economics - Finance, grade: 2.92, , language: English, abstract: This study focuses on internal factors and how they are affecting the profitability of banks in Pakistan.

And: How are these internal determinants affecting the commercial banks' profitability in Pakistan?

In this study we estimate the total factor productivity growth of Pakistan's commercial banking sector for the period 1992 - 2000 by bringing together the supply and demand sides of banking services. We employ the translog cost function that includes inputs like labour, capital, operating cost and deposits. The two outputs of the banking sector considered for analysis are loans, advances and investment, and contra accounts. The study provides estimates for the total factor productivity which has shown an upward trend for the period under consideration. The results obtained suggest that the total factor productivity of Pakistan's commercial banks has been increasing since the start of the various banking sector reforms in the 1990s, but growth has followed a fluctuating pattern. It also determines growth for each year and sheds light on the performance of the banking sector in different periods in the light of different phases of reforms. The decomposition of TFP shows that the scale effect is the most critical factor in total factor productivity growth followed by output effect and technical change effect.

Furthermore, the results highlight the significant relationship between regulatory governance and a robust economy on the performance changes observed in the power industry.
