Pamir H. Sahill

Lecturer, School of International Relations & Diplomacy

Pamir H. Sahill is an Anglo-American University alumnus currently PhD candidate at Jan Masaryk Centre for International Studies, University of Economics, Prague where he teached various International Relations’ courses.

His doctoral research focuses on the discourses of US-led international state-building in Afghanistan. In the dissertation he is working on developing a Foucauldian-inspired concept of ‘politics and spaces/structures of confinement’ to offer a contextual and critical understanding of international engagement in post-2001 Afghanistan.

His current research interests revolve around theoretically and empirically exploring the notions and discourses of international (in)security, terrorism, post-conflict state-building, developmentalism (as an ideology nudging the traditional frames of the left and right), state, sovereignty and identities-borders-orders (IBO).
